ROTC Student Resources 

Career Options

ROTC students are eligible for a commission as a second lieutenant in the U.S Army, the Army National Guard or the U.S. Army Reserve. As an Army officer, you will have the opportunity to work in a sophisticated high-tech environment with dedicated professionals in a variety of fields.


Each year the U.S. Army awards two- and three-year scholarships to outstanding young men and women participating in the Army ROTC program who desire careers as army officers. The Army pays tuition, fees, books and laboratory expenses incurred by the scholarship student. In addition, each student receives from $300 to $400 per month for the academic year. The Savannah Volunteer Guards have established a full-tuition scholarship for qualified incoming freshmen enrolled in ROTC classes. No military obligation is incurred. The scholarship is for one year, with a possibility of renewal for the next school year. Individuals desiring to compete for these scholarships should apply to the Military Science Department.

Army ROTC Uniforms, Books and Supplies

Students enrolling in the Army ROTC program will be issued U.S. Army uniforms, books and supplies by the Military Science Department. No fees or deposits of any kind will be required. Uniforms must be returned before commissioning or upon disenrollment from the ROTC program.


Cadets who have not been awarded a scholarship and are not part of the National Guard or Reserve can still contract after obtaining 30 college credits and have met all administrative and physical requirements. Non-scholarship Cadets receive the same monthly stipend as scholarship Cadets.

Cadets who are in the Army National Guard or Reserve fall under our SMP Program.
