At Syracuse University, our ROTC program gives you a jump on your future by earning an officer’s commission and a college degree at the same time.

If you’re highly competitive, have a desire to serve your country, and want both certainty and flexibility in your future career, consider the Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) program.

You’ll simultaneously earn the commission of second lieutenant in the U.S. Army or Air Force and a degree from Syracuse University, where we have one of the longest continually running training programs in the country, producing leaders since 1918. You’ll combine leadership training with a regular academic major—a combination that will prepare you for both military and civilian careers. All ROTC students have the opportunity to join the ROTC Living Learning Community.
