Joining ROTC (Enrollment)

ROTC is a college course that you enroll in just as you would any other course at college.  Once you have enrolled in ROTC through the University we will have much more enrollment paperwork to fill out to fully participate in ROTC and to be considered for a scholarship/contract. Space for qualified Cadets is very limited these days.  If your plan is to skip the first year and enroll in your sophomore year you may be too late.

STEM Students

The Army is in need of people that can excel in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. If you are majoring in Engineering or earning your degree in a Hard Science contact us to see how you can put your degree to work for your Country.

Bring that form to the Registrar at Xavier located in the Musketeer Mezzanine in Fenwick Place.  The Xavier Registrar will process your paperwork then you must return the form back to the affiliate school Registrar.  By doing this your transcripts will include your ROTC classes.
