*The ROTC programs at MIT are operated under Department of Defense (DOD) policies and regulations, and do not comply fully with MIT's policy of nondiscrimination with regard to sexual orientation. MIT continues to advocate for a change in DOD policies and regulations concerning sexual orientation, and will replace scholarships of students who lose ROTC financial aid because of these DOD policies and regulations.
