Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC)

Receiving an academy appointment is an extremely competitive process. Every year many highly qualified candidates are not selected or nominated to a Service Academy. These candidates do however meet the qualifications for acceptance at numerous private and state universities across the country. Most of these colleges and universities have one or more ROTC programs located on their campus. ROTC can offer you the same officer commission and military career opportunity as a Service Academy. In addition, ROTC offers thousands of full tuition and fees scholarships to attend these private and state universities. The links below will provide you with more information on each Service's ROTC program.
