Two-Year Program

The two-year program enables students who did not enroll in the basic program to become eligible for entry into the advanced program through one of three methods: (1) Armed Forces veterans and Junior ROTC graduates may qualify for entry into the advanced program; (2) students may elect to attend the ROTC Leader’s Training Course (a five-week program completed during the summer) before entering the advanced program; and (3) students may attend basic training as members of an Army Reserve or National Guard unit. To be eligible for the two-year program, one must be a full-time student in good standing with the University and must have at least junior status, be pursuing a four-year degree, and satisfy all the entry requirements outlined above for the advanced program.
