CADETS

Army ROTC students who receive an ROTC scholarship or those who enter the Advanced Courses (students third and fourth years) must agree to complete a period of service with the Army.

  • You can serve full-time in the Army for three years (four years for scholarship winners)
  • Selected Cadets may choose to serve part-time in the U.S. Army Reserve or Army National Guard while pursuing a civilian career
  • Enrolling in the Army ROTC Basic Course (first and second years) does NOT involve a commitment of service to the Army unless you have received an Army ROTC scholarship.

ROTC is an experience you cannot get anywhere else, and your leadership skills will be challenged every day. Contact you NIC Military Science department for more specific details on your ROTC choices and service commitment.

For pay information, please review the following resources.
