Join Army ROTC
Army ROTC is a leadership training program that leads to a commission as an Officer in the United States Army, U.S. Army Reserve, or the National Guard. How do I join?
High School Students
If interested in applying for an ROTC scholarship you can apply for a scholarship by visiting http://www.goarmy.com. Four year scholarships that can be applied toward tuition and fees or room and board are often available. No commitment to the Army is made until a scholarship is fully accepted.
We strongly recommend joining the Joint ROTC Learning Community if you are a Fresman who intends on participating in Army ROTC. As a member of the Learning Community, you would be placed together with other ROTC students in the residence halls and you will share some classroom experiences. You would be authorized to use the Learning Community tutors and participate in exclusive events. To join, indicate your preference on your Housing Contract. For more information, visit the Joint ROTC Learning Community homepage.
If you are interested in just participating in ROTC with no military obligation, it is as simple as registering for a college class. During initial enrollment at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, be sure to register for MLSC101. Students attending the University of Nebraska at Kearney, Concordia, Nebraska Wesleyan, Doane, or any other partnership schools may also be able to participate in Army ROTC through the Big Red Battalion at the University of Nebraska- Lincoln.

If youre interested in joining Army ROTC and you are already in college, you can begin by participating in the Army ROTC Basic Course by enrolling in MLSC101. If you have two or more years remaining toward your undergraduate degree, but not enough time to complete the Army ROTC Basic Course, you may enter the Advanced Course upon completion of the Leaders Training Course at Ft. Knox, KY. The Leaders Training Course is for college students who want to complete Army ROTC training in two years (usually the final two years of college). Scholarships are also often available for current college students and may cover up to 2 or 3 years of tuition and fees or room and board. Please contact us at 402-472-4269 or at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about joining Army ROTC as a current college student.
If you are interested in joining Army ROTC as a graduate student, you may be eligible to attend the Leader Training Course and participate in the Advanced Course during your final two years as a graduate student. Please contact us at 402-472-4269 or at email@example.com for more information about joining Army ROTC as a graduate student.
Prior Military Service
Soldiers who are currently in the National Guard or U.S. Army Reserve can participate in the Army ROTC through the Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP). Cadets in the SMP serve as Officer trainees in the Reserve or National Guard while completing college. SMP Cadets can earn their Reserve/Guard pay and benefits in addition to Army ROTC allowances.
Soldiers who are currently on Active Duty may be eligible for Green-to-Gold programs or other scholarship opportunities to complete college and earn their commission as an Officer.
