Army ROTC, or The
Reserve Officer Training Corps, is a leader development
program designed to train motivated young men and women
in the skills required to become successful United
States Army Officers. The program is designed to help
students gain leadership experience through military
training events and learning mission planning
A Bachelors degree is required to become an officer in
the United States Army. Depending on previous
experience some cadets may complete the ROTC
requirements between two to four years of
participation, ultimately graduating from college with
a bachelor's degree and a minor in Military Science
prior to accepting a Commission in the U.S. Army, the
U.S. Army Reserves, or the Army National Guard as a
Second Lieutenant. While many people can graduate from
college, only a few will gain the leadership experience
required to be an effective US Army Officer.
ROTC has 4-year, 3-year, and 2-year
depending on how much college you need to complete for
you Bachelor's Degree. There is also the Simultaneous
Membership Program, in which a cadet trains with the
U.S. Army Reserves or the Utah Army National Guard
while participating with Weber State Army ROTC.
