Explore ROTC Opportunities and Scholarships

What is ROTC?

Comprehensive Leadership Program.
You'll learn the principles of leadership, management and problem-solving-all of which will help you as an Army officer or down the road in the corporate world.  

Fraternal Organization. Create lifelong friendships and bonds inside and outside of the training environment and enjoy the opportunity to participate in club activities.  

Opportunity to Serve. When you graduate from college, you will receive an officer commission as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army and the opportunity serve in the most respected and most powerful ground force in the world.

Army ROTC Scholarships

All eligible GCU students have the opportunity to apply for an Army ROTC scholarship. The Army ROTC scholarship is one of the most accessible and generous scholarships in the nation.

Army ROTC scholarships* consist of:

  • Two-, three- and four-year scholarship options based on the time remaining to complete your degree
  • Full-tuition scholarships
  • The option for room and board in place of tuition, if you should qualify
  • Additional allowances for books and fees
  • Monthly living allowances for each school year, worth up to $500

Scholarships are also available for students who want to go into the Army Reserves or National Guard.

ROTC Commitment

Your obligation to the Army is eight years total: four years on active duty and four years in the active reserve components or Individual Ready Reserves (non-active reserves).

You will also take a three-credit class that can be used as an elective toward your degree. Your lab will meet on Thursday mornings. Physical training meets Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at two different times. You can pick the time that fits your schedule.

ROTC Nurse Summer Training Program (NSTP)

The ROTC NSTP is a paid three-week, 120-hour clinical rotation in an Army hospital working one-on-one with an Army nurse preceptor/instructor. Learn more at GoArmy.com or by speaking with the on-campus ROTC officer.
