The objective of the Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) program is to develop leadership and management skills. Upon completion of the degree and the ROTC program, students may be offered a regular or reserve commission in the United States Army. The university offers both a two- and four-year ROTC program.
The four-year program is taken in two phases. The basic course is taken in the freshman and sophomore years. It incurs no military obligation, but it may earn physical education credit. Courses include leadership and management with practical training in military skills and survival. Veterans may be granted credit for the basic course. In the second phase, leadership and management training are expanded. Students earn $450 per month and attend a paid six-week summer camp following their junior year.
The two-year program consists of attending a paid six-week basic ROTC camp in lieu of the basic course. Completion of this camp qualifies students for admission into the advanced course.
