Become an Army ROTC student

In the United States, we are proud to have an all-volunteer Army of young men and women like you.

Join those who value service and want to make the world a better place to live.

What is ROTC?

The Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) is one of the top leadership programs in the nation and is the U.S. Army's primary officer training program. As an Army ROTC student, you can complete all the requirements of Army officer training while simultaneously attending college and earning your degree.

The requirements of being an Army Cadet in college are well above and beyond what typical college students experience, but the rewards are great and the profession highly respected and honored.

Upon completion of your chosen degree and commissioning requirements, you will earn the rank of Second Lieutenant and the distinction of being a leader, prepared to lead America's most precious treasure, the sons and daughters who have chosen to serve with you and follow your lead.

Once you graduate from college you can commission into the active U.S. Army, the U.S. Army Reserve or Army National Guard.
