The four-year army ROTC is divided into two parts. the Basic Course and the Advanced Course. The Basic Course is generally taken during the first year of college and incurs no military obligation. unless you receive National Guard of scholarship funds. In the Basic Course, you’ll experience leadership challanges, military tactics, weapon training and more.

The Advanced Course is offered the final two years of college to students with the interest and potential to become Guard officers- and who meet the physical mental and academic standards. Completion of the Basic Course or CIET is a prerequisite. Those attending the Advanced Course also commit to serve as an Officer in the National Guardor Army following graduation.
