Army Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) 392-ARMY

Military Home | History/Overview | Policies/Procedures | Programs

The general objective of Army ROTC is to provide junior officers who by their education, training and inherent qualities, are suitable for continued development as officers in the U.S. Army. The aim is to provide a basic military education and, in conjunction with other college disciplines, to develop individual character attributes essential to a professional military officer.

The Army ROTC advanced course includes four semesters of instruction on campus and five weeks of summer camp at a military installation, normally at the end of the junior year. During each semester, cadets are required to participate in one weekend field training exercise at a military reservation. Additionally, cadets are required to attend morning physical training (exercise) sessions up to three times weekly.

Training Allowances and Service Obligation

Each student receives from the U.S. government a monetary subsistence allowance for advance course, $350 for juniors and $400 for seniors per month, paid during the period of enrollment in the advanced course for not more than 20 months. Students are paid for their travel to and from the five-week summer camp. While at camp, they are provided quarters, rations and one-half of a second lieutenantís pay per month. Qualified cadets may be eligible to serve as drilling members of reserve component units, in the pay grade of E-5 or higher, under the Simultaneous Membership Program. Upon the studentís successful completion of the advanced course, the cadet is commissioned a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army.

Outstanding advanced course cadets may be selected to attend airborne, air assault, northern warfare, military mountaineering training, or other U.S. Army training courses. Several cadets are offered the opportunity to serve in leadership positions in active Army units immediately following the National Advanced Leaderís Camp under the Cadet Troop Leadership Training Program. This program includes an opportunity for selected cadets to travel and serve in Germany or Korea. Prior to commissioning, students must take and pass one semester of the following courses: military history, English composition and computer literacy in order to complete the professional military education program requirements.
