REACH AND OBTAIN A WORTHWHILE GOAL The Reserve Officers’ Training Course (ROTC) is an experience like no other. As a Cadet, your leadership skills will be challenged every day, as you are provided with the tools, training and knowledge necessary to excel as an Officer in the National Guard. You will learn to lead, inspire and motivate Soldiers. You will conduct combat, hometown, and when necessary disaster relief-support missions.
BE PART OF A TIME-HONORED TRADITION Since 1916, ROTC has created leaders who go on to successful military and civilian careers: General Colin Powell (Joint Chiefs of Staff Chair and Secretary of State) COL Eileen Collins (first female Shuttle Pilot and Commander of a U.S. Spacecraft) Sam Walton (U.S. Army Captain and Wal-Mart Founder) Historically, ROTC has produced two-thirds of all National Guard Officers..
BECOME A LEADER ROTC BASIC COURSE The ROTC Basic Course takes place during your first two years of your bachelors degree in college (normally during freshmen and sophomore years). It normally involves one elective class, lab and physical training each semester. You will learn basic military skills and the fundamentals of leadership, laying the groundwork for you to become an effective leader in the National Guard.
BECOME A LEADER ROTC ADVANCE COURSE The ROTC Advance Course takes place during the last two years of your bachelors degree in college (normally during the junior and senior years). It normally involves elective classes, lab and physical training each semester. You will learn advanced military skills and the fundamentals of leadership. You will be placed in leadership positions and have opportunities to excel and prove yourself as an effective future leader in the National Guard.
BECOME A LEADER LEADER DEVELOPMENT AND ASSESMENT COURSE (LDAC) All contracted ROTC Cadets will attend the LDAC. This six-week summer course, taken between your junior and senior year, teaches and evaluates advanced military skills. You are assessed in your ability to perform in positions of leadership prior to graduation and commissioning as a Second Lieutenant.
SIMULTANEOUS MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM (SMP) THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS SMP Cadets attend ROTC and work as assistants to National Guard leadership during drill weekends. Becoming an SMP Cadet is the only way to gain “real world,” on-the-job experience. SMP Cadets are eligible for benefits not available to traditional ROTC Cadets, including drill pay and tuition assistance, which can total over $40,000 for college. Surely the best of both worlds in your path to becoming an Officer!
SIMULTANEOUS MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM (SMP) UTILIZING YOUR PRIOR SERVICE Because of military training and experience, students who have completed military Basic Training can enroll directly into Advanced ROTC and skip the first two years of ROTC. These students are also eligible to enter the Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP) – a joint program offered by the National Guard and ROTC.
IT PAYS TO BECOME A LEADER ROTC offers you real rewards: Friendships that will last a lifetime Training that will benefit you throughout your military and civilian career paths Financial assistance necessary to earn a college degree
ROTC SCHOLARSHIPS Whether you’re a college-bound high school student or you’re already attending a college or university, you may qualify for a scholarship that will pay your full tuition and fees or your room and board, whichever you choose. Scholarships are based on your performance (academic, athletic and leadership) and your remaining college (one, two and three-year coverage).
