Did you know?

  • You can take the first two years of Army ROTC without an ARMY ROTC scholarship or commitment to the Army. This course is just like any other elective course.
  • If you do not receive an Army ROTC scholarship while in high school, you can attend UVM and apply for an Army ROTC scholarship once you begin your freshman year.
  • Although technical majors are highly sought after, almost any major at UVM is compatible to become an Army Officer.
  • You can be in Army ROTC and in the National Guard or Army Reserve.

National Guard/Reserve Students

  • The first two years of Army ROTC are not required for students who served on Active Duty or who are currently serving the National Guard/Army Reserve.
  • Green Mountain Battalion Army ROTC cadets have the opportunity to attend advanced Army Training such as Airborne and Air Assault School, Mountain Warfare Training and Northern Warfare Training.
