            The Military Science Program is open to both male and female students who wish to earn a commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army. It’s important for students to understand that enrollment in the first two years of the four-year ROTC program incurs no military obligation. Additionally, the first-year and second year (sophomore-level) Military Sciences courses (maximum of 6 academic credit hours at Edinboro) are offered without cost to full-time students and may be applied toward graduation requirements. The necessary books and equipment are also furnished without cost to the student.

            The Reserve Officer Training Corps commissions future officer leadership in the United States Army. Upon completing the ROTC Program, students are commissioned as Second Lieutenants, promising an active career in the Armed Forces for the next twenty to thirty years. 

            Students enrolled in the program receive instruction in the fundamentals of leadership with emphasis on self-discipline, integrity, confidence and responsibility. This instruction is given in the classroom, on practical field training exercises, and during the summer Army ROTC Basic Course, Army ROTC Advanced Course, Cadet Leaders Course (CLC), Cadet Initial Entry Training (CIET), Cadet Troop Leadership Training (CTLT), Northern Warfare Training Courses (NWTC) and in the Airborne and Air Assault schools. These training experiences enable the student to evaluate situations, make decisions, and develop those attributes essential to a leader in both the civilian and military environment.
