Obligations

Enrolling in the Army ROTC Basic Course does NOT involve a commitment of service to the Army unless you have received an Army ROTC scholarship. Army ROTC students who receive an Army ROTC scholarship, or enter the Army ROTC Advanced Course, agree to complete an eight-year period of service with the Army.

  • Serve full time in the Army for three years (four years for scholarship winners), with the balance in the Individual Ready Reserve (IRR).
  • Selected cadets may choose to serve part time in the US Army Reserve or Army National Guard while pursuing a civilian career.

Contact the military science department for more details.
