Frequently Asked Questions    

WHAT IS ROTC?

Leadership That Lasts a Lifetime

Army ROTC is an elective curriculum you take along with your required college classes.  It gives you the tools, training and experiences that will help you succeed in any competitive environment.  Along with great leadership training, Army ROTC can pay for your college tuition.  Because Army ROTC is an elective, you can participate your freshman and sophomore years without any obligation to join the Army.  You will have a normal college student experience like everyone else on campus, but when you graduate, you will be commissioned as an Officer in the Army.  At that point, you will have a wide range of interest areas you can specialize in called branches.

Who We're Looking For

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

Nurse Program

If you're considering an undergraduate Nursing degree, enrolling in Army ROTC can enhance your leadership skills and critical thinking abilities while providing financial support to help make your professional goals a reality.
