About Army ROTC

The Military Science Program, Army ROTC, teaches you to lead. It’s one of the strongest leadership courses in the country and is part of your college curriculum. If you’re a high school student, in college, or already in the Army, you can be a future leader of tomorrow by becoming an Army officer by joining ROTC. This college elective is for undergraduate and graduate students that provides unrivalled leadership training for success in any career field. If you have a passion for it, you can find a place to fit in the Army as an officer and get the training you need to turn that passion into a career.

The primary goal of ROTC is to identify, instruct, and commission young men and women for the United States Army. We provide you with managerial skills necessary to organize and effectively lead in the Army, corporations, small businesses or other organizations.

The Military Science program consists of four years, split between the Basic and Advance course. The Basic Course has zero obligations and is designed to provide you with a fundamental leadership education. It gives you the opportunity to see if being an Army officer is a career you wish to pursue. The Advanced Course is your final two years in college and expands upon the Basic Course curriculum.

Why should you be a part of our Army ROTC program?

Army ROTC Cadets are regular students just like everyone else on campus. You take a regular schedule of classes and have an academic major. Once a week you meet as a group for leadership laboratory, along with your regular ROTC academic class instruction. During lab, you wear the Army Combat Uniform (ACU) and conduct military and leadership training. You can take ROTC as an elective course or pursue the entire program, which culminates in a commission as a Second Lieutenant—an Army Officer.

Army ROTC is an equal opportunity program. We welcome all full-time students to try out the program and participate in our many activities. All qualified students have the chance to pursue an officer's commission, regardless of gender, race or religion. ROTC promotes a physically fit lifestyle and provides a drug-free environment.
