You will purchase all necessary uniforms during your first week of training at OCS. If you do not already own uniforms, please do not purchase them prior to arrival. Uniform items are very specific, and purchasing them from any source other than an authorized Navy Uniform Store may result in you having to repurchase items and unnecessary expenditures. Overall, the average OCS student in the class will spend roughly $3,500 on uniforms. The uniform allowance does not cover the entire cost of items purchased. Most students will need to pay out of pocket an additional $1,000, planning for the additional payment is important.
***For prior service military, if you already own uniforms on the attached list with the exception of undergarments, you will need to bring them with you. They will be verified for serviceability and proper fit after arrival. Any items that are not determined to be serviceable are required to be replaced during uniform issue periods. Note that the uniform inspection process is extremely meticulous.
