What is ROTC?
The Reserve Officer Training Corp (ROTC) program is one of the most successful leadership programs in the U.S. It offers cadets paid tuition and a guaranteed military career post-graduation. ROTC programs at Grand Canyon University (GCU) can help you develop governance skills that meet high U.S. Army quality standards and will be useful in many post-military careers.
Army ROTC Scholarships
All eligible GCU students have the opportunity to apply for an Army ROTC scholarship, which is one of the most accessible and generous scholarships in the nation. You may be eligible for full tuition scholarships, allowances for books and more.
Your obligation to the Army is eight years total: four years in Active Duty and four years in the Active Reserve components or Individual Ready Reserve (non-Active Reserve).
You will also take a three-credit class that may 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 may pick the time that fits your schedule.
Try ROTC with No Obligation
Non-scholarship students can try Army ROTC programs for up to two years with no obligation while they work toward a college degree either at GCU or one of the Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD) colleges. Just sign up for MSL-101 in the fall or MSL-102 in the spring.
If you have questions, or if you would like to know how to enroll in the Army ROTC program, call 855-GCU-LOPE and speak with a university counselor.
