Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP)

This program provides membership in ROTC and an Army Reserve or Army National Guard unit at the same time. While enrolled in ROTC, the student is also filling a leadership position, such as platoon leader, in a Reserve or National Guard unit. This affords the student the opportunity to gain valuable leadership and management experience while attending the University. The student receives the ROTC stipend and drill pay from the Reserves. Students who qualify and take advantage of all the benefits that are available through this program may receive benefits of as much as $12,000.
