Reserve Officers Training Corps Army ROTC is a program of study that combines electives in military science/leadership with practical leadership development opportunities to prepare men and women to become Army officers. ROTC opens the doors to a variety of exciting careers,

extra curricular activities and advanced military training. Upon successful completion of the Army ROTC program and graduation from college, Cadets receive a commission as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army, the Army Reserve or the Army National Guard. 4-year Leadership Internship Tiger Battalion Participating in ROTC ALL students at a four-year institution offering ROTC can participate in the programs Freshman & Sophomore classes without obligation or commitment! Like a test drive, these students can enjoy up to four semesters of ROTC and fully investigate if becoming an Army Leader is right for them without incurring a service obligation. Students who enjoy the curriculum and demonstrate strong scholar, athlete, and leader character traits may choose to pursue a contract with ROTC. An

ROTC contract allows the student to collect financial benefits during college in exchange for service as an Army Leader [Officer], either full or part-time, after college. Some students may enjoy ROTC but ultimately decide they do not wish to pursue an ROTC contract, and thats perfectly okay. They will still enjoy strong camaraderie with peers and a quality Leadership curriculum. Tiger Battalion Benefits of Army ROTC For ALL Participants Leadership!
