Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC)

Program Director: Dodge

Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corp (ROTC) programs emphasize qualities of character and responsibility that are embedded in W&J’s mission to graduate the “well-educated person.” Every course in W&J ROTC teaches personal qualities of leadership, character development, and ethics, as well as skills of teamwork, analysis, problem solving, and oral and written communication, that will help students in their other curricular and co-curricular efforts at the College.

ROTC is an elective curriculum students can take along with their required college classes. Pursuit of ROTC may be combined with any of W&J's areas of study. Freshmen and sophomores may enroll in the Army ROTC Basic courses (101, 102, 201, and 202) without commitment of service to the Army unless they have already received an Army ROTC Scholarship. Students can enter the program as incoming freshmen; as existing freshmen or sophomores without scholarship assistance; or as two-, three-, or four-year scholarship students, based on the time remaining to complete their degree.

Army ROTC scholarship students, or those who enter the Army ROTC Advanced courses (301, 302, 401, 402), must agree to complete an eight-year obligation to the Army. Additional program details, including eligibility requirements, can be obtained from the faculty director; from the ROTC office; or by emailing

REQUIREMENTS: ROTC Scholarship students must take one MSC course each semester they are under contract with the Army. Non-scholarship students may take MSC 101, 102 (as freshmen) or MSC 201, 202 (as sophomores) without commitment. The Advanced ROTC courses (MSC 301, 302, 401, and 402) require contract with the Army. All ROTC courses must be taken under the Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory grading option.
