Welcome to the Bobcat Battalion!

Army ROTC allows MSU students to become Army Officers while they earn a bachelor's or master’s degree. Students take 4-6 credits of ROTC classes each semester to become a full-time Active Duty officer or a part-time officer in the Army National Guard or Army Reserve. Students can major in any degree offered at MSU and minor in Military Studies. Not only does Army ROTC supply leadership experience and a job after graduation, it can also provides a monthly stipend, money for books, and cover full tuition and fees.
