Army ROTC produces high quality officers to serve in the US Army. It is also a college elective you can try out for up to two years with no obligation. Unlike traditional college courses, Army ROTC gives you a wide range of experiences while you work toward a degree. You'll combine classroom instruction with practical experience, learning skills that are sure to give you an edge over your peers when it comes time to look for a job. Whether you're planning a career in the Army or the corporate world, Army ROTC is a smart elective course to take. Additionally, SU's ROTC Battalion has consistently been ranked in the top 10% of the 272 College ROTC's across the nation.
ROTC consists of the Basic Course (Freshman and Sophomore years), which is the primary basis for entry into the Advanced Course (Junior and Senior years), and the Advanced Course leads directly to service as an Army officer. At the end of the Sophomore year, students who wish to enter the advanced course, but did not complete the Basic Course may attend the Leader's Training Course and receive Basic Course credit. Basic Course credit is also given to students with prior military service, either Active or National Guard or Reserve, who have completed Basic and Advanced Individual training.
The Basic Course is designed for beginning students who want to qualify for entry into the Advanced Course and for those who want to try Military Science without obligation. You will learn basic military skills, the fundamentals of leadership, organization, and management which will lay the groundwork toward becoming an Army leader. In addition to the Military Science classes, we offer the opportunity to participate in organized physical training (PT), Leadership Excellence Orientation Labs at Fort Lewis, WA, and other challenging extra curricular activities.
The Advanced Course builds on what you learned in the Basic Course. Your junior year will focus on the direct application of leadership, problem-solving, decision-making, and team-building skills through the execution of varied training events. Experienced instructors and Senior Cadets will provide constant, performance-oriented feedback and mentoring to help you realize your potential. Your junior year will culminate with your attendance at the Leadership Development and Assessment Course (LDAC). LDAC is where you will put all you have learned in the three prior years to the test. Entering the Advanced Course requires a commitment to serve as an Officer in the U.S. Army after you graduate.
There are a wide variety of scholarships available. High school students may apply for 4-YR Active Duty or 3-YR scholarships. For current and transfer college students there are 3-YR and 2-YR scholarships and Guaranteed Reserve Forces Scholarships. We have 2-YR scholarships available for graduate students as well.
