Start Strong- Leader's Training Course

There is still time to get Qualified and become an Army Officer even if you missed all or part of the first two years of Military Science classes!


The Leader's Training Course (LTC) is the Army’s 2-year ROTC Program entry point. Students without previous ROTC Basic Course experience can examine the Army with no obligation, and qualify for Advanced Course entry to become a Commissioned Officer.

The Army provides critical, real-time leadership feedback to the student and determines their officer potential in a leadership oriented, challenging and motivating 28-day training program.

Students who successfully complete the Leader's Training Course may compete for a Two-Year Army ROTC scholarship, which pays Full Tuition, Books and Fees!
