Qualified cadets enroll in one military science class and leadership laboratory each semester. Cadets attend a five-week leadership training camp during the summer between their third and fourth years. With the instructor’s permission, students not enrolled in Army ROTC may take military science classes as electives. These students are not cadets and are not required to participate in the “Applied Military Leadership” courses (the MISC xxx5 Labs).
Internship Program Second-year, transfer, and graduate students who were unable to take ROTC during the first two years of college may be eligible for a compressed program. These students complete a five-week summer internship at Fort Knox, Kentucky. During attendance, they are provided transportation, food, lodging, and cadet pay. They may also compete for two-year scholarships.
Scholarship Programs Merit-based financial assistance is offered to qualified students through two-, three-, and four-year scholarships for tuition assistance (up to $16,000 per year), $600 annually for books and equipment, and a monthly stipend during the school year. Stipends vary by academic year and are awarded based on the following schedule: first year, $300; second year, $350; third year, $450; and fourth year, $400. Students may apply during their junior or senior years of high school and their first or second years of college. Scholarship recipients and contracted cadets incur a military service obligation.
Non-scholarship cadets enroll in the same courses as scholarship cadets. During their third and fourth years, they receive the same monthly stipend as third and fourth year scholarship students. Non-scholarship cadets incur no military obligation until the last two years of a four-year academic program at the University.
