When you are called to serve in the U.S. Army, you can begin your training through RWU’s Army Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) program. You’ll advance your leadership skills to prepare for the Army and gain access to new scholarship opportunities. Upon completion of the Military Science program, you will be eligible to be commissioned into the Army.

There are three variations of ROTC available:
- The Four-Year Program: During the four-year program, students participate in required military science courses and activities. Attendance at a six-week advanced training camp is required between the third and fourth years. The eight courses required in this program are listed below.
- The Two-Year Program: The two-year ROTC program begins with a six-week Camp Challenge summer training session (with pay). After successful completion of Camp Challenge, the student enters the third year of ROTC and attends advanced camp during the next summer. Enlisted members of the Army National Guard or Army Reserves who have completed basic training can qualify for the two-year ROTC Simultaneous Membership Program.
- The Three-Year Program: The third variation consists of a three-year program for students who wish to enter ROTC during their sophomore year or who intend to complete their academic studies in three years. This program compresses the requirements for the basic course into one year.
