If you are considering joining the military but still want to earn a college degree, look into North Dakota’s Army ROTC programming. Army ROTC is an elective curriculum you take along with your required college classes. As an ROTC cadet, you not only get to experience life as a traditional college student, you also receive formative training that prepares you for a career in the U.S. Army.
Introductory courses in army leadership take place during your first two years in college and do not require a military commitment. Advanced coursework in military tactics, team organization and decision-making take place during your final two years in college. Enrolling in advanced courses requires a commitment to serve eight years as a U.S. Army Officer following graduation.
If you are accepted into an Army ROTC program, you may be eligible for up to four years of full-tuition scholarship. The ROTC also provides additional allowances for books, fees and monthly living expenses.
