Roger Williams University is approved for benefits for the education of veterans, active duty service personnel, disabled veterans, and qualified dependents. Veterans who seek admission should follow the regular admission policies but should also contact the Veterans Affairs coordinator in the Registrar's Office. This should be done as early as possible to expedite handling of applicant's V.A. forms and counseling.
Army Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) is offered by the University and is available to all male and female students. Physically qualified American citizens who complete the entire four-year program are eligible to be commissioned in the U.S. Army. Delayed entry into active service for the purpose of graduate study is available.
Military science course work is designed to complement other instruction offered at the University. Emphasis throughout is on the development of individual leadership ability and preparation of the student for future leadership roles in the Army. Professional military education skills in written communications, human behavior, history, mathematical reasoning, and computer literacy are fulfilled through required University Core Curriculum requirements and the military science curriculum.
Please see the descriptions of the available programs (four, three and two year programs) for additional information.
Significant scholarship opportunities are available to students participating in the ROTC program. These scholarships are based on performance and not on financial need.
