Start Strong

  • The Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) is a way for young men and women to start strong in life. The college elective for undergraduate and graduate students that provides unrivaled leadership training for success in any career field. If you have a passion for it, you can find a place to fit in the Army as an officer and get the training you need to turn that passion into a career.
  • ROTC is now available at TSU and offers merit-based scholarships that can pay up to the full cost of tuition and open educational opportunities.
