1 ROTC Overview Itinerary –Benefits of ROTC –PAN/LEAD –Enrolled “Z” Status –Academic Alignment & 104-Rs –Scholarships/contracting paths –Contracting Board –Contracting –Questions

2 Military Science & Leadership MSL 101/102: Open to every student on campus! –Even if student cannot serve in the military NO OBLIGATION/COMMITMENT FOR FR/SO Very Little Homework but 4 hours/week –1 hour lecture –1 hour physical fitness (6:15-7:15am) –2 hour lab, in uniform (7-9am Thursdays, 8-9 can be waived) Not a recruiting pitch Not just “Army Stuff”; leadership in general 30-50% attrition of Freshman students is normal/expected

3 Benefits of ROTC Non-Tangible Leadership Critical Thinking Goal Setting Time Management Problem Solving Public Speaking Management Skills Discipline If you enjoy the Non-Tangible and wish to serve after college, then there are Tangible Benefits as well Scholarships – Pays Tuition or Room & Board Full in-state or out-of-state Tuition – Stipend (Monthly) $300 Fr/$350 So/$450 Jr/$500 Sr – Book Stipend $1200 (Annually) – Prior Service $350/month Kicker to GI Bill

4 PAN/Lead PAN: Participating Not-Enrolled –The bulk of in MSL 101 (Fall)/102 (Spring) Students Actively testing driving Army ROTC & the Military ROTC does not submit names to database/tracking Allowed to attend class, Ranger Challenge, PT, Lab, etc –Allowed to do everything other Cadets do even if not/can’t contract No monetary assistance at this point No obligation to serve during or after college Can sign up for MSL 201(Fall) / 202 (Spring)

5 Enrolled: “Z Status” Cadet says “I’m thinking about contracting” Entered into ROTC database Easy dis-enroll: Still a test drive, can still walk away Must be in a “Z” status to contract or have a scholarship application submitted Civil reviewed Medical initiated –MEPS within 2 years of contracting date allowed Requires six easy forms to become Enrolled in ROTC Begin 104-R (Planned Academic Program Worksheet)

6 Academic Alignment & 104-Rs –First thing that happens when a Cadet says “I might contract…” –At very latest, start by the time Cadet is enrolled (Z status) –Identify how many semesters are left until graduation –IOT contract, must have “PME” for every semester (10 auth) 101/102/201/202/301/302/401/402/Military History/Ind. Study It is the Cadet Responsibility to generate 104-R –Let Cadre know how we can help if you are having issues Why is the 104-R a big deal? If you contract and fail to graduate on the date indicated on the 104-R…you have violated the Contract and may pay back $$

7 Contracting Board Requirement to contract or have a scholarship application submitted (does not count AD) Board consists of ROTC Cadre, Senior Cadets, and university official(s) Contract immediately after the board (same day) If Cadet does not contract right after (due to summer training), then contract is 1st day of school next semester PMS does not sit on board, but does review board findings and makes final determination on contracting

8 Contracting Test drive is over: You will serve as an Army Officer –PT 3 times/week if 270+; 5 times/week if 269- Cadet is counseled every semester, to include 104-R If contract is voided at no fault of the Cadet (Medical, family hardship, etc), likely not have to pay back funds If contract is voided due to “I don’t want to play” or “I didn’t follow my 104-R”, Cadet pays back full scholarship Can now participate in CULP, Airborne, Air Assault, etc

9 Two ways to Serve Active Duty –Full-time Job with free medical, 20 YR pension, 401K, etc –Likely not in WI and move every 2-4 years –See the world –Very Competitive (not guaranteed) Army Reserves (USAR) / Army National Guard (ARNG) –Part-time Job: One weekend/month; two weeks in summer –Very affordable Health insurance, pension, 401K –Expectation is that you need a full-time job; AGR –Generally can stay in one area of the state Can still move/transfer state-to-state if needed

10 Paths to Contracting Paths that allow for Active Duty –Non Scholarship SMP Cadets –Traditional Campus-Based Scholarships –Non Scholarship non-SMP Paths that do NOT allow for Active Duty –2 Year non-dedicated GRFD –3 (or 2.5) Year Dedicated GRFD

11 Non-Scholarship SMPs In USAR/ARNG…actively drilling 100% tuition via Reimbursement/Remission If MOS’Qed, Chap 1606 GI Bill ($362/month) If one year Title 10, Post 9/11 GI Bill-eligible Once contracted, $350/month GI Bill Kicker Once contracted, stipend ($350/$450/$500/month) E5 Drill, $ Can compete for Active Duty, USAR, or ARNG (3/6) Only USACC funds are stipend pay & CLC pay 6 SEMESTERS LEFT to contract!!!!!!!!!

12 Campus-Based Scholarship Can NOT be in USAR/ARNG, or prior service 100% tuition for scholarship length –Tuition or Room/Board [About $3500/semester] –Why take room & board? [Answer: Tuition is already paid for] $600 Book Stipend each semester Once contracted, stipend ($300/$350/$450/$500/month) Can compete for Active Duty, USAR, or ARNG –Can convert GRFD with 6 or less semesters left Only option for contracting 7-10 semesters prior to graduation GI Bill Benefits are not used (i.e. are saved for Masters)

13 Non-Scholarship Non-SMP Not in USAR/ARNG No Tuition No GI Bill- (Unless Post 9/11 or Chap 30 prior service) No GI Bill Kicker No drill pay Once contracted, stipend ($350/$450/$500/month) Can compete for Active Duty, USAR, or ARNG 6 SEMESTERS LEFT to contract!!!!!!!!!

14 GRFD 2 YR Scholarship Must be USAR/ARNG, actively drilling Keeps ARNG/USAR tuition, GI Bill, & Kicker –No FTA in conjunction with any GRFD 100% tuition for scholarship length –Tuition or Room/Board [About $3500/semester] $600 Book Stipend each semester Once contracted, stipend ($450/$500/month) Must assess USAR or ARNG (8 years)! Virtually unlimited funding Only four semesters left to contract with GRFD

15 Dedicated GRFD 2.5 / 3 / 3AD YR Must be USAR/ARNG, actively drilling Keeps ARNG/USAR tuition BUT defer GI Bill & Kicker! –Saves 1606 GI Bill & ARNG Officer Kicker for Masters Degree 100% tuition for scholarship length –Tuition or Room/Board [About $3500/semester] $600 Book Stipend each semester Once contracted, stipend ($350/$450/$500/month) Must assess USAR or ARNG (8 years)! –Locked into component (AR or NG) when scholarship is decided Must have no less than 5 or 6 semesters left
