Assumption is a proud participant in the ROTC Program that empowers young men and women to becomes leaders in the U.S. Armed Forces.

The Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) is a college program offered at more than 1,700 colleges and universities across the United States that prepares young adults to become officers in the U.S. Military.

There are many benefits to pursuing this life-changing opportunity at Assumption. In addition to building a strong academic foundation, ROTC students will gain tremendous leadership, interpersonal and technical skills. Generous scholarship and stipend opportunities are offered, some of which cover full tuition and provide a living allowance.

Students who complete the ROTC program and/or are awarded a scholarship commit to serve in the military after graduation and are guaranteed an Officer Commission, providing them with a manager-level position straight out of college. Whether students decide to continue in the military after their commitment is fulfilled, or pursue a civilian job, their military experience will set them apart from other candidates.
