Do you want to be all that you can be - in the army, the navy or the air force? Then check out what the ROTC can offer you!

ROTC - An Overview

The Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) prepares young peeps to serve in the military. The ROTC is a college program that's offered at over 1,000 colleges and universities across the US. They offer scholarships in the Army, Navy and Air Force. You can apply for a 4-year scholarship while you're in high school, but you must meet the general qualifications.
  • Be a US citizen.
  • Be 17-26 years old.
  • Have a high school GPA of at least 2.5.
  • Have a high school diploma.
  • Pass the physical exams.
  • Agree to serve in the military after graduating college.
  • ROTC - Why Should I Join the ROTC?

    Getting up at the crack of dawn to have a drill sergeant yell at you to drop and give him 20 may not exactly be appealing, but if you're looking for a chance to serve your country, pay for college and find a rewarding career after graduation, then the ROTC is the path for you.

    ROTC - About Army ROTC

    In the Army ROTC basic course, you'll learn army customs and traditions, military operations and tactics, principles of war and the fundamentals of leadership. For more info, head to the Army ROTC website.

    ROTC - About Navy ROTC

    Once you graduate from the Navy ROTC, you can become a naval aviator, naval flight officer, special warfare officer, submarine officer or a surface warfare officer. For more info, head to the Navy ROTC website.

    ROTC - About Air Force ROTC
    The Air Force ROTC offers two programs - the Air Force Senior ROTC Program recruits and trains college students, while the Air Force Junior ROTC Program provides aerospace training at the high school level. In order to be accepted, you have to take the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test, which is a standardized test that's similar to the SAT. It tests you in five areas - pilot, navigator, academic, verbal and math. For more info, head to the Air Force ROTC website.
