Commissioning Opportunities in all Branches of the Armed Services
The ROTC Departments at The Citadel offer commissioning opportunities in all branches of the armed services. The branches of the armed services include the Air Force, Army, Marines and Navy. This ROTC program offers opportunities to obtain leadership positions in the armed forces upon graduation. While every cadet at The Citadel must successfully complete a course in one of four ROTC departments each semester, cadets are not required to work toward a ROTC commission, or to accept a ROTC commission should it be offered. Commissioning in all branches of the armed services is voluntary.
The Citadel Service to Country Scholarship and National Service Scholarship
The Citadel Service to Country Tuition Scholarship and National Service Room/Board Scholarship are awarded to three and four-year ROTC national scholarship high school student awardees chosen through the national review process managed by the Army, Navy, Marines, and AirForce/SpaceForce. The scholarships support students awarded a national ROTC scholarship through the national board processes described in the links below on each branch’s website. The award must be awarded prior to May 1, 2024.
Please note that The Citadel ROTC department does not award ROTC Scholarships. ROTC Scholarships for the Air Force, Army, Marines and Navy are administered directly through the awarding military branch.
