Army ROTC is an elective curriculum you take along with your required college classes. It prepares you with 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, too. You will have a normal college student experience like everyone else on campus, but when you graduate, you will be an Officer in the Army.
Being an Officer in the U.S. Army means you're a leader, a counselor, a strategist and a motivator. It's similar to being a vital manager in a corporation. As an Officer, you will lead other Soldiers in all situations and adjust in environments that are always changing. They are driven to achieve success with their team on every mission.
Army ROTC is one of the Nation's top leadership programs, with many benefits to joining. Through Army ROTC you can:
- Get help with your college tuition with an Army ROTC scholarship
- Gain experience you can't find anywhere else
- Gain the respect of your peers and future employers
- Train to become a leader and manager
In the Army ROTC you will be surrounded with outstanding students from around the country. The Army ROTC will hone your leadership skills and as an officer in the US Army you will have the opportunity to shape the Army's future, culture and doctrine.
Some of the options offered by the Army ROTC are 2, 3, and 4 year scholarships that cover tuition and fees up to $80,000, living expenses of up to $4,000 a year as well as an annual allowance for books. ROTC scholarships are awarded to applicants regardless of the cadet's families' financial status and are based solely on merit. Army ROTC students who receive an Army ROTC scholarship or enter the Army ROTC Advanced Course must agree to complete a period of service with the Army.
Selected Cadets may serve part-time in the US Army Reserve or Army National Guard while pursuing a career in the civilian arena.
Enrolling in the Army ROTC Basic Course does NOT require a commitment to serve in the Army unless you are the recipient of an Army ROTC scholarship.
Army ROTC requires that you be a US Citizen, over 17 years of age. Some other requirements are that you take the SAT or ACT by November of the year you apply, and that you maintain an excellent academic record.
