Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC)

The Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) programs are elective programs for students who desire commissions in the armed forces.

The objective is to develop professional officers who have varied educational backgrounds in major fields of interest and have the professional knowledge and standards needed for future growth. Although the aim in each service is the same, the individual programs differ because of varying responsibilities assigned newly commissioned officers in the three services and differing plans of continuing education.
