  • Officer Candidate uniforms are similar to those worn at USNA and NROTC, with several notable differences. Candidates wear plain fouled anchors. In the final phase, Candidate Officers wear the collar device of MIDN ENS through MIDN CAPT, but are never referred to as Midshipmen.
  • The U.S. Navy Officer Candidate shoulderboard is worn by the entire regiment without reference to collar device.
