HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

  • If interested in applying for an ROTC scholarship you can apply for a scholarship by visiting the Go Army website. Four year scholarships that can be applied toward tuition and fees or room and board are often available. No commitment to the Army is made until a scholarship is fully accepted.
  • If you are interested in just participating in ROTC with no military obligation, it is as simple as registering for a college class. During initial enrollment at one of the CUNY colleges, be sure to register for a military science course at either the City College of New York or York College. Students not attending these colleges, can still take the military science course at these colleges through the e-permit system.

Contact the Enrollment & Outreach Officer, Mr. Raymond Frattolillo, at 212-650-6478 or at ROTC@cuny.edu with any questions.

COLLEGE STUDENTS

  • If you’re interested in joining Army ROTC and you are already in college, you can begin by participating in the Army ROTC Basic Course by enrolling in a military science course at either the City College of New York or York College. Students not attending these colleges, can still take the military science course at these colleges through the e-permit system.
  • If you have two or more years remaining toward your undergraduate degree, but not enough time to complete the Army ROTC Basic Course, you may enter the Advanced Course upon completion of the Cadet Initial Entry Training at Ft. Knox, KY. The Cadet Initial Entry Training is for college students who want to complete Army ROTC training in two years (usually the final two years of college). Scholarships are also often available for current college students and may cover up to 2 or 3 years of tuition and fees or room and board.
