Leadership That Lasts a Lifetime

Army ROTC is an elective you take along with your required college classes. It gives you the tools, training and experiences that will help you succeed in any competitive environment. Along with great leadership training, Army ROTC can pay for your college tuition. Because Army ROTC is an elective, you can participate in your freshman and sophomore years without any obligation to join the Army. If you continue for your junior and senior years you will have a normal college student experience like everyone else on campus, but when you graduate, you will be commissioned as an officer in the Army. At that point, you will have a wide range of interest areas you can specialize in called branches.

Who We Look For?

Students who excel in Army ROTC want something more out of their college experience. Generally, these students are scholars who keep their grades up, athletes who are physically strong and leaders who have a great desire to learn.

What's the Obligation?

Army ROTC students who receive an Army ROTC scholarship or enter the Army ROTC Advanced Course must agree to complete an eight-year period of service with the Army.

You can serve full time in the Army for three years (four years for scholarship winners), with the balance in the Individual Ready Reserve (IRR). Selected cadets may choose to serve part time in the U.S. Army Reserve or Army National Guard while pursuing a civilian career.

Your leadership skills will be challenged every day.
It's an experience that you can't get anywhere else.

Enrolling in the Army ROTC Basic Course does NOT involve a commitment of service to the Army unless you have received an Army ROTC scholarship.
