Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors & Minors

Castleton students may enroll in the University of Vermont's Army ROTC program. The four-year Military Studies program consists of the Basic and Advanced Courses described in detail on UVM's website. Most of the first two years of this program can be taken on campus at Castleton when demand is sufficient, but some training will take place at UVM and Army facilities. The junior and senior years of the ROTC program are offered at UVM, to which Castleton students will travel approximately once a week. Two-, three-, and four-year Army ROTC scholarships are available to qualified applicants. Information is available through the Castleton Admissions Office.

The Basic Course is open to all first-year and sophomore students and is designed to introduce interested students to the Army, the role of an Army officer, and basic military skills. Please see Financial & Registration Services for a registration form. Other than for Army ROTC scholarship students, the Basic Course incurs no military obligation. All military studies courses will be recorded on the Castleton transcript and will count as elective credit.

The Advanced Course is open to qualified junior and senior students who have either successfully completed the Basic Course, the Army ROTC Basic Camp, or Army Basic Training and Advanced Individual Training. The course is designed to prepare students for careers as Army officers. Students are required to successfully complete a 35-day Army ROTC Advanced Camp the summer following their junior year. Upon completion of the Advanced Course and a bachelor's degree, graduates are commissioned as Second Lieutenants in the United States Army, Army Reserves, or Army National Guard.
