Program Overview Army ROTC

Military Science (Army ROTC) is an elective curriculum taught by Army personnel. Students develop their leadership abilities by learning critical-thinking skills, the value of character, competence and courage, as well as self-discipline and team building. Students are also challenged through the participation in activities such as physical fitness, orienteering, small-unit tactics, marksmanship and leadership reaction courses. Additionally, ROTC Cadets are eligible to apply for generous scholarships that can cover the full cost of tuition and fees or room and board. Upon completion of a baccalaureate degree and all ROTC requirements, a student may receive a commission as a second lieutenant and will be eligible for assignment with the Active or Reserve/Army National Guard Forces of the U.S. Army.
