Military Science and Leadership Army ROTC Program


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs

The Military Science and Leadership program is designed to provide an on-campus program for qualified students in all academic majors who desire to serve as an Army officer on active duty or in a local Army Reserve or Guard unit. While students may participate in either undergraduate or graduate studies, the program requires at least two years to complete. Students who have completed at least basic training in any of the armed services may be eligible to enter the advanced course directly. Other students must complete three to six of the courses in the basic course of study or complete a thirty-day Leader’s Training Course (LTC) prior to entering the advanced course. All contracted ROTC students are required to participate in an off-campus leadership laboratory one weekend each semester. Scholarships are available on a competitive basis. All ROTC students receive $400-500 per month during the final two years of the program.
