The Army and Air Force Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) programs provide preprofessional preparation for future Army and Air Force officers. They are designed to develop the skills of students who can apply their education to their initial assignments as commissioned officers. In order to receive a commission, ROTC cadets must complete all requirements for a degree in accordance with university requirements, as well as complete certain courses specified by the Department of Military Science or the Department of Aerospace Studies. Depending on the student's program of study, such courses may supplement or serve as electives with the approval of the appropriate academic unit.
For details on the Air Force or Army ROTC program, refer to Department of Aerospace Studies or Department of Military Science in the Other Departments and Offices for Research and Services section of this catalog.
