What Is ROTC And What Does It Do For Me?

Army ROTC is an elective curriculum you take along with your required college classes. It prepares you with the tools, training and experiences that will help you succeed in any competitive environment. Along with great leadership training, Army ROTC can pay for your college tuition, too. You will have a normal college student experience like everyone else on campus, but when you graduate, you will be an Officer in the Army. Army ROTC logo


After graduating from Army ROTC, you become an Army Officer.
Being an Officer in the U.S. Army means youre a leader, a counselor, a strategist and a motivator. It's similar to being a vital manager in a corporation. As an Officer, you will lead other Soldiers in all situations and adjust in environments that are always changing. Officers are problem-solvers, key influencers and planners. They are driven to achieve success with their team on every mission.
Training and Curriculum
The specific training you receive in Army ROTC will teach you things like leadership development, military skills and adventure training. This will take place both in the classroom and hands-on in the field, but you will have a normal daily schedule like all college students. Army ROTC is comprised of two phases: Basic Course and Advanced Course.


Army ROTC Basic Course
The Basic Course takes place during your first two years in college as elective courses. It normally involves one elective class or lab each semester. You will learn basic military skills, the fundamentals of leadership and start the groundwork toward becoming an Army leader. You can take Army ROTC basic courses without a military commitment.

The Advanced Course takes place during your last two years in college as elective courses. It normally includes one elective class or lab each semester, plus a summer leadership camp. You will learn advanced military tactics and gain experience in team organization, planning and decision-making. Entering the Advanced Course requires a commitment to serve as an Officer in the U.S. Army after you graduate.

Advanced Leadership Camp
Every Army ROTC Cadet who enters into the Advanced Course attends National Advanced Leadership Camp. It's a four-week summer camp to evaluate and train all Army ROTC Cadets. This camp normally takes place between your junior and senior years of college, and is conducted at Fort Lewis, Washington.
