Why should I choose ROTC during my college career?

The Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) is a U.S. Army program that enables you to focus on your college career while also receiving valuable Army and leadership training. The U.S. Army will cover your tuition and fees for the specified number of years of your awarded scholarship. Upon completion of your college career, you will be commissioned as an Officer in the U.S. Army where you can serve full time on Active Duty or part-time in the National Guard or Army Reserves. Being a ROTC Cadet offers you a chance to obtain a college degree, have a guaranteed career path after graduation, and move on from college with little to no student loan debt. If you have a desire to serve in the world's greatest Army, reach out to our department at CSB/SJU to discuss your options today!
