What is Army ROTC?
Army ROTC is one of the best leadership courses in the country and can be part of your college curriculum. Through classes and field training, Army ROTC provides you with the tools to become an Army Officer without interfering with your other classes. ROTC also provides you with discipline and money for tuition while enhancing your college experience. Graduates of our program serve in a variety of career fields including operations (Infantry, Armor, Aviation, Artillery, or Engineers), operations support (Intelligence, Signal), force sustainment (Logistics), or other specialty fields (Cyber, Medical Service). In addition to two-year, three-year, and four-year scholarships, some Cadets choose to join the National Guard or the Army Reserve while in Army ROTC, thus qualifying them for the GI Bill, in-state tuition, and other exciting benefits.
