Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) helps train students to be officers in a branch of the US military. The Department of Military Science provides professional training for students leading to a commission upon graduation in the Active Army, Army Reserve, or the Army National Guard. Military Science instruction is focused on hands-on leadership development and the practical application of military skills needed to produce America's future leaders.
Additionally, military science courses count as electives in many degree programs. MS 101 and MS 102 are open to students who are not enrolled in the program, but have an interest in leadership, management, military history or military training.
ROTC programs offer tuition assistance to cadets by granting numerous scholarships to members who qualify. This assistance can help pay for college tuition and miscellaneous fees, textbooks or other school expenses.

U.S. Air Force ROTC
The Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) program’s mission is to develop young men and women into quality leaders for the United States Air Force.

The program consists of a one hour academic course for the first and second year students, and a three hour course for the third and fourth year students. All students must also participate in a weekly one-hour Physical Training session and a two-hour leadership laboratory that facilitates the application of leadership theory.
