Army ROTC Prospective Cadets


All members of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets will take an ROTC course of instruction while at The Citadel. On average, 60-70% of cadets enroll in Army ROTC with a significant portion who make the commitment to serve in the active Army, Army Reserve, or National Guard after graduation. All contract-eligible Cadets are guaranteed active federal service in the military after graduation due to The Citadel's status of one of only a few Senior Military Colleges in the nation.

You will be required to brave a rigorous academic program and an unmatched military environment if you become a member of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets at The Citadel. That education will be further enhanced if you pursue a commission in the Army. Officers in the Army must possess the traits necessary to lead others through the most challenging of circumstances and you will use all the knowledge and skills from your comprehensive experience at The Citadel.

Opportunities to commission in the Army via our Army ROTC program are also available for students in the Veteran and evening undergraduate Citadel program and the Citadel Graduate College, at the College of Charleston, Charleston Southern University, and the Medical University of South Carolina.
