What is Army ROTC? How does Army ROTC differ from other college courses? In Army ROTC, you'll do stuff that'll challenge you both mentally and physically. As you find yourself rappelling from cliffs or leading your team through various obstacles, you'll develop skills you can use throughout your entire life and career. Like thinking on your feet, taking charge and making smart decisions. While gaining exposure to the many career opportunities of an Army officer, you'll also gain confidence, self-discipline and experience - all prerequisites for future success in both civilian and military careers.

YOUR COMMITMENT

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

  • You can serve full time in the Army for three years (four years for scholarship winners)
  • Selected Cadets may choose to serve part time in the U.S. Army Reserve or Army National Guard while pursuing a civilian career

It's an experience that you can't get anywhere else, and your leadership skills will be challenged every day. Contact your campus Military Science department for more specific details on your Army ROTC service commitment.

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.
