U.S. Army ROTC

Any matriculating or current Columbia University student can apply to participate in the Army ROTC program through NYC Army  ROTC, headquartered at Fordham University.

Army ROTC produces 75% of all Army officers - prestigious professionals who serve as the leaders and managers of this nation's armed forces. It is designed as a college elective, which you can try out for up to two years with no obligation. The program provides you with a wide range of experiences as you work towards your degree, combining military science classes with hands-on leadership experience - skills that are sure to give you an edge over your peers in the job market.

Contracted Cadets receive between $250 to $400 per month in stipends. Scholarships of up to $17,000 per year are also available to incoming and current students to assist in defraying the cost of a Columbia education. The award of a scholarship is based on merit. Although selection is competitive, Columbia students have been very successful in obtaining ROTC scholarships.

Students in the Army ROTC program attend their military science classes and leadership training labs at Fordham University's Lincoln Center campus, just a few subway stops away from Columbia. Their studies focus on leadership development, problem solving techniques, management, planning and organization, professional ethics and responsibilities, and military skills and training. At the completion of the program, students are commissioned as Second Lieutenants in the U.S. Army, and continue on to serve three to four years in the Active Army or eight in the Army Reserves.
