ROTC program

The Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) is a college-based, officer commissioning program designed as an elective-curriculum taken along with required college classes.  Classes start at a 100 level that start your freshman year and progress  to 400 level classes by senior year.  Opportunities are also availble for graduate students also interested in becoming an officer in the Army.  Instead of starting at the 100 level, you will be placed in to the 300 level classes.
