The Program

The program has been designed to meet the country's requirement for officer-leaders in the Army (Active Duty, National Guard and Reserves). It is, therefore, multifaceted with distinctive sub-elements to meet individual needs and requirements.

For example, ROTC is traditionally a four-year program, but individuals with prior service, members of Reserve or National Guard units, participants of JROTC in high school, and summer Leader's Training Course attendees may receive advanced placement credit and complete the program in two years. 

Normally all students enroll in one military science course, leadership laboratory and physical training per semester. The program consists of two phases: the basic course (lower division), normally taken during the freshman and sophomore years or obtained through advanced placement credit, and the advanced course (upper division). Physical fitness of all cadets is closely monitored throughout.
