Cadre 2019Army ROTC is a program offered at hundreds of colleges and universities nationwide, training college students to be officers in the active Army, Army reserve and Army National Guard.

During the first two years at the university, ROTC cadets have no military obligation. Following graduation, ROTC cadets are required to serve in the active Army, Army National Guard or the Army Reserve.

In college and after graduation, cadets find that the training and experience they receive are assets - whether pursuing an Army or civilian career. Employers place high regard on the management and leadership skills cadets acquire in the ROTC program. ROTC experience looks great on a resume. When cadets complete the ROTC course, upon graduation, they become commissioned officers in the U.S. Army.
