Army ROTC is one of the best leadership courses in the country and is part of your
college curriculum. During classes and field training, you will learn first-hand what
it takes to lead others, motivate groups and how to conduct missions as an Officer
in the Army. Army ROTC classes integrate into a graduate student's degree map and
enables them to progress towards their degree. Upon graduation from Army ROTC, you
will earn the bar of a Second Lieutenant and become a leader for life.
We are seeking highly qualified incoming graduate students with a strong academic record. Graduate students must have at least two-years (four semesters) of academic curriculum remaining. Students who join ROTC for graduate school will complete military science prerequisites the summer before beginning their master's program. During a month-long program, ROTC graduate students complete the basic course level of training to prepare them for the final two-years of the program.
ROTC offers leadership training and a career path after graduation. Graduate students who use the ROTC two-year scholarship commit to four years of military service after graduation. During their training and service, ROTC graduate students build leadership and technical skills as an officer. These leadership skills are honed during their service and lead them directly into civilian jobs in business, government, or elsewhere.
"ROTC is focused on preparing the most adaptive, agile, and proficient future leaders
for the Total Army as possible. It’s not just for undergraduate students. We partner with universities to recruit, educate, train, and commission graduate
student leaders of character.”

"If it wasn’t for them [her superiors and colleagues], I don’t think I would be here today.”
“I learned a lot about myself at AU and it’s allowed me to shift my focus toward my family. My encouragement is to chase your dreams. You never know if you can catch them unless you try.”
