Students in R.O.T.C. learn through a unique program that involves both classroom and "live" situations. For instance, an R.O.T.C. cadet might be found leading classmates through adventure training, down a river in a raft, or up a mountain wall.
The Army offers a wider range of career opportunities, in more places around the world, then any other U.S. military branch. We also have more opportunities than the other branches for non STEM majors especially. STEM majors are welcome however and about 30% of our commissionees are in a STEM field.
Army R.O.T.C. offers two-, three- and four-year scholarships, which pay full tuition and fees, include a separate allowance for books, and a monthly stipend of up to $5000 a year. Army R.O.T.C. scholarships are not retroactive.
Scholarships are awarded once a year. Students apply by November 15 and selections are made continuously thru May 15. Four-year scholarship applications must be requested between March 1 and November 1. Also, once cadets are on campus, two-year and three-year scholarships become available.
No. Anyone can enroll in R.O.T.C. And regardless of whether you're a scholarship winner or not, all R.O.T.C. books, supplies and equipment are furnished at not cost to you.
Army R.O.T.C. Cadets are allowed to major in nearly all academic areas.
