Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC)
The Senior ROTC Program at APSU is an elective set of courses resulting in a Military Science minor and commission as an Army officer. Enrollment in freshman or sophomore courses does not obligate the student in any way to military service. The program emphasizes instruction in the development of leadership skills and managerial abilities. It provides qualified men and women who desire to serve their country the opportunity to do so as officers in the United States Army, Army Reserve, or National Guard. Scholarships are available to include nursing students. All classes and leadership labs are offered at APSU.
The ROTC program is divided into the Basic Course (freshman and sophomore years) and the Advanced Course (junior and senior years). There is no military obligation incurred for enrollment in the Basic Course. After completing the Basic Course, qualified students can enroll in the Advanced Course. Students can also qualify for the Advanced Course if they have completed basic training in any military branch or attended MSL 2030 . Training, uniforms, and books are paid for through the ROTC program.
Tuition scholarships are available to qualified students. Selection is based upon performance to date, SAT and ACT scores, extracurricular activities, and leadership potential.
