The two-year program permits students who attended a junior college, transfer students, those who did not take Military Science Basic Courses during their first two years of school, and students entering a two-year post graduate course of study to enter the ROTC Advance Course. Students can take advantage of this opportunity by successfully completing a paid four-week ROTC Basic Camp.  (MSCI 2640 Basic ROTC Summer Camp Challenge), usually after their sophomore year, and enrolling in the ROTC Advanced Course, normally in their junior year. Except for this camp, the requirements for and obligations incurred in the two- and four-year programs are the same.

All students in the Advanced Course receive uniforms, paid attendance at the Leader Development and Assessment Course (LDAC), and a monthly stipend each school year.

Before entering the Advanced Course, an individual signs a contract that certifies an understanding of the service obligation. This obligation may be fulfilled in a variety of ways depending on the individual's personal preference and the needs of the Army at the time of commissioning.

All commissionees incur a service obligation of eight years with service being either full time active duty or part time in the Army Reserves or the Army National Guard.  The mix of active and reserve duty is determined by the needs of the Army, the cadet's performance, and the type of contract the cadet signed (scholarship or nonscholarship, guaranteed Reserve Forces Duty or participation in the Simultaneous Membership Program of the Army Reserve/National Guard).
