Military Science Two-Year Program

Army ROTC - Two-Year Program

There is a two-year Army ROTC program for students that have two years remaining to complete their degree program. This may include transfer students, junior college students, graduate students and any student that has not participated in the Military Science Basic Course (first two years of the program).

By attending the 31 day Army ROTC Basic Camp at Fort Knox, Kentucky, these students are eligible to enter the Advanced Course (junior and senior year). Students attend this course during the summer following their sophomore year (before the start of their junior year). Students desiring to start ROTC in their junior year should contact the Military Science Department for eligibility to attend Basic Camp at Fort Knox, Kentucky.

Students entering the Advanced Course (in their junior year) sign a contract which outlines their service obligation following graduation from YSU. This obligation may be fulfilled in a variety of ways (active duty, Army Reserves, Army National Guard) depending on the individual's personal preference and the needs of the Army at the time of commissioning. Contact the department of Military Science to discuss contract details.
