To join ROTC, all you need to do is enroll in MS1005 (Fall semester) or MS1006 (Spring semester). You must be a member of the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets to participate in any ROTC classes. The freshman level (MSI) military science courses are worth 2 credit hours. The only requirement is that students attend class and leadership lab. All other participation is optional and designed to let new cadets experience ROTC at their own pace. Uniforms and equipment will be provided to all cadets who wish to fully participate.
Also see our Courses page for details of each Military Science course.
