General Information


Army ROTC at UW-Stevens Point is a two-, three- or four-year program that ultimately leads to a Commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army. Army ROTC teaches leadership skills you need to be successful in your college, military and civilian career. Participants in our program are also eligible to earn a minor in Miltiary Science. ROTC also offers valuable scholarships for scholars, athletes and leaders. Scholarship recipients receive full tuition and fees, a monthly stipend and other financial benefits throughout the academic year.

Getting Started

The ROTC program is broken into a Basic Course and an Advanced Course. The Basic Course and includes the electives of Military Science I and II. These classes are normally taken during the freshman and sophomore college years and taking them incurs NO military obligation. Completion of the Basic Course, or prior military experience, makes students eligible for the Advance Course. Students who wish to continue into the Advanced Course enroll in Military Science III. Upon completion of the MS III year, students attend a four-week Leadership Developement & Assessment Course (LDAC) at Ft. Lewis, Wash. Upon the completion of college and Military Science IV, graduates are Commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the Active Army, Army National Guard or Army Reserve. Regardless of where you serve, you will be rewarded with the knowledge that you are a professional and are contributing to the security and welfare of the United States.

Non-Traditional Entry

Students who did not have the opportunity to take Army ROTC during their freshman or sophomore years can complete the Basic Course requirement by attending the Leader's Training Course (LTC) at Fort Knox, Ky., during the summer. The Leader's Training Course is a paid, four week, intership focused on building small group leadership skills. A high percentage of LTC graduates receive scholarships upon their completion of LTC.
