The specific training you receive in Army ROTC focuses on leadership development, military skills and adventure training. This will take place both in the classroom and in the field. We ensure our program will not interfere with your other academic courses; academics is your first priority as an ROTC cadet.
Army ROTC Cadets at Medgar Evers College will be asked to participate in campus events, local civic activities, and military training. These events cover a broad range of challenges including Drill & Ceremony, Weapon Training, Land Navigation, Color Guard, and Ranger Challenge.
Cadets may qualify to volunteer and earn training slots in U.S. Army schools such as Airborne, Air Assault, Mountain Warfare, Northern Mountain Warfare, and West Point Cadet Field Training.
Through classes and field training, Army ROTC provides you with the tools to become an Army Officer without interfering with your other classes. ROTC also provides you with discipline and money for tuition while enhancing your college experience.
If you're interested in enrolling in Army ROTC and you are in college, you can start by taking an Army ROTC basic elective course. If you have at least two or more years remaining toward your undergraduate degree, but not enough time to complete the Basic Course, you can enter the Army ROTC Advanced Course by completing the Leader's Training Course held at Fort Knox, Kentucky, during the summer.
Talk to our campus ROTC representative about other ways to enroll in Army ROTC and the incentives available, including opportunities to compete for two-, three-, or four-year scholarships.
Junior College & Graduate Students
If you have two years remaining in junior college or graduate school, you are still eligible to enroll in Army ROTC.
