These Benefits Last a Lifetime

Army ROTC is one of the Nation’s top leadership programs, with a wide range of benefits. Through Army ROTC you can:

  • Train to become a leader and manager
  • Gain experience you can’t find anywhere else
  • Gain the respect of your peers and future employers
  • Get help with your college tuition with an Army ROTC Scholarship


In Army ROTC you will learn to become a leader—not just a person who gives orders, but a person who leads by example. Being an Officer in the U.S. Army means you’re a counselor, a strategist, and a motivator. It’s similar to being a vital manager in a corporation. As an Officer, you will lead other Soldiers in all situations and adjust to environments that are always changing. You’ll be driven to achieve success with your team on every mission.

Skills Development

The specific skills you receive in Army ROTC will include things like leadership development, military skills, and adventure training. This will take place both in the classroom and in the field, but you will have a normal daily schedule like all college students. Army ROTC has two phases: Basic Course and Advanced Course.

Whether you’re a college-bound high school student or already attending a college or university, Army ROTC has scholarships available. There are various scholarships available and details can be found on our page “Becoming an Officer”. There are also campus-based Army ROTC scholarships given out yearly to outstanding Cadets determined by the Professor of Military Science. Scholarships are awarded based on a student’s merit and grades, not financial needs.
