become a leader in the ROTC program at UW-Stevens Point

Upon successful completion of all degree and ROTC requirements, students will earn a commission as a second lieutenant. Graduates have the opportunity to serve on active duty or in the reserve component (Army Reserve or Army National Guard) where they can put their degrees to work immediately after graduation. ROTC will teach you how to think critically, problem solve, and manage time and resources as a future United States Army officer.
