Military Science and ROTC

Start strong in life and enroll in Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC). This college elective provides unrivaled leadership training for success in any career field. In exchange for a paid college education and a guaranteed post-college career, Cadets commit to serve in the Army after graduation. You will be able to have a normal college student experience, but when you graduate, you will be commissioned as an Officer in the U.S. Army and have a professional career awaiting you.

What is ROTC?

Founded in 1916, ROTC stands for Reserve Officer Training Corps. It’s a college program offered at more than 1,000 colleges and universities across the United States. ROTC prepares young adults to become Officers in the U.S. Army.

ROTC provides significant college scholarships that cover tuition, books and fees, and monthly stipends for those that compete for the opportunity. It also provides significant opportunities for students to develop strong leadership skills, with the goal of being commissioned as an Officer in the U.S. Army. In the end, it continues to create leaders for the nation, both in and out of uniform.
