Lock Haven ROTC


Army ROTC prepares college students for military service as commissioned officers in the active Army, or part time in the Army Reserve or Army National Guard. Scholarship first-year students and non-scholarship first and second-year students may enroll on a trial basis with no commitment to the military.

Students may leave the program or continue with advanced courses to earn a commission as an officer upon graduation. Although the program is designed to start with new first-year students each fall, it is possible to enter the program as late as fall of the junior year.

Students with prior military service or those who complete a 31-day summer training camp may bypass the freshman and sophomore level training. Scholarships of various types and length are available. Some of these scholarships guarantee duty specifically in the Army Reserve or Army National Guard.

Program Commitment

First- and second-year Cadets commit approximately seven hours a week during the school year, while third- and fourth-year students commit approximately ten hours a week.  This time is spent on weekly classes, physical training, monthly leadership labs and a semester field training exercise.

Path to Success

Upon completion of the Army ROTC program, graduates will be commissioned as Second Lieutenants in the U.S. Army and will embark on specialized training in their first Army branch.  Following officer branch training and a first assignment, U.S. Army officers may pursue additional specialized training and post graduate education opportunities.  They will be assigned to advanced leadership positions and to staff positions in upper management.  Also, they may develop doctrine, teach military tactics or serve as advisors.
