Virginia Tech Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps

Welcome to Army ROTC at Virginia Tech. The Reserve Officer Training Corps is a college elective that develops Leadership Skills in our students as they prepare for Military Service. Army ROTC offers a commission as a second lieutenant in either the Active Duty Army or Reserve Forces in a variety of career fields including Combat Arms (Aviation, Armor, Artillery, Infantry, or Engineers), Combat Support, and Combat Service Support branches. There are two-, three-, and four-year scholarship programs available. Some cadets choose to join the National Guard or the Army Reserve while in Army ROTC, thus qualifying them for the Montgomery GI Bill benefits, in-state tuition (VANG) and other exciting benefits. 

Virginia Tech is one of the United States' six Senior Military Colleges and one of two such programs at a predominantly civilian university. As a graduate of a Senior Military College, a medically qualified cadet successfully completing all ROTC requirements is virtually assured of obtaining an active duty commission.  A few cadets each year earn a reserve forces duty commission.  These future lieutenants will serve as a commissioned officer in either the U.S. Army Reserve or the Army National Guard. 

Virginia Tech Army ROTC promotes "Hokie Strong" - the unique combination of Army Strong with Hokie Spirit and Ut Prosim.
