Graduate Students

If you are a graduate student, you are still eligible to participate in ROTC.

Most graduate programs are two years in length. You’re encouraged to contact the Recruiting Operations Officer as soon as you have been accepted to a graduate program or are exploring the possibility of applying.

Graduate students must begin the process with ROTC sooner rather than later in order to be eligible to complete the ROTC program. It’s recommended that graduate students begin the ROTC application the spring or early summer prior to their first year. Graduate students typically must start their graduate program in the fall semester in order to align properly with the advanced course of ROTC.

To begin the application process, complete this webform to schedulie a time to speak with the Recruiting Operations Officer.
