Become an Army officer through ROTC

APSU’s program has been recognized nationally for excellence


What is ROTC?

Reserve Officers’ Training Corps is a series of electives that allows students to participate in one of the nation’s premier undergraduate leadership development programs.

The ultimate goal of ROTC is to become fully qualified to serve as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army upon graduation.

However, any student may benefit from taking the freshman and sophomore level ROTC courses without incurring a military obligation.

Austin Peay’s Army ROTC program is consistently ranked as one of the best of its kind in the nation in terms of the quality of officers who go on to serve in the active Army or Reserve component upon graduation.
