Special Programs

The Army ROTC program provides incentives for Nursing majors, Enlisted Soldiers, and Army Reservists to participate in its program while attending college in pursuit of a B.S. or M.S. degree.

Nursing Program: Army Nurses are valued members of a health care team that includes 14,500 members in 37 hospitals around the world. Army Nurses enjoy considerable respect, autonomy, and authority as they pursue various roles within the Army Nurse Corps. Take Army ROTC in college, along with your nursing studies and begin your nursing career as a poised and self-confident Lieutenant in the Army Nurse Corps.

Green to Gold Programs (G2G): The U.S. Army promotes four Green to Gold programs that are available for qualified enlisted soldiers who want to become commissioned officers through the Army ROTC program while pursuing their Bachelor or Master’s degree. The programs are as follows: 2 YR Active Duty Option (ADO), 2, 3, or 4 Year Scholarship, 2 YR Non- Scholarship, and 2, 3, or 4 Year Dedicated Hip Pocket Scholarship.

Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP): The Army ROTC SMP is a program in which students who are at the same time:

  • full-time college students (sophomore, junior, senior, or grad students)
  • Currently serving (or willing to enlist) in the USAR or ANG
  • enrolled in Army ROTC

In the SMP you participate in unit training with your USAR or ANG unit one weekend a month, while earning your commission through ROTC. Upon college graduation, you will be commissioned as an officer in the Army, and may have the option of either serving full-time on Active Duty, or part-time in the Army Reserves or Army National Guard. This option will depend on the type of ROTC contract the cadet signs upon joining the Army ROTC program.
