ROTC Benefits

Get More Out of College

Men and women who succeed in the Army ROTC program are students who excel and want something more out of their college experience. They are students who keep their grades up, athletes who are physically strong and leaders who have a great desire to learn.

Getting into Army ROTC is as easy as registering for a freshman course—any student can enroll. Students who enter after their freshman year may double up on classes or take four weeks of summer training (with pay) in order to catch up and qualify to enter advanced courses. Veterans and students serving in the Army National Guard or Army Reserve qualify to enter directly into the advanced course with outstanding financial benefits. Contact the ROTC office for permission to register.
