Department of Military Science and Leadership
Our mission and partner institutions
Central Michigan University offers an Army ROTC program unlike any other. Utilizing challenging courses and motivated instructors, cadets are given the tools they need to be ahead of their peers both in and out of the classroom. Our curriculum is fun, challenging, exciting and relevant.
Our dedicated instructors embody the Army's seven core values and commit themselves wholeheartedly to shaping you into the leader needed by the military and/or in a civilian career while giving you all the resources you need to discover and expand your leadership potential.
Those students interested in receiving a commission as a United States Army officer are eligible to earn two-, three- or four-year full-tuition scholarships. Moreover, those awarded scholarships receive up to $600 in textbook money each semester in addition to a $420 monthly stipend for living expenses.
We are headquartered at Central Michigan University, and we maintain satellite programs through Ferris State University, Alma College, Saginaw Valley State University and Northwood University, where students can also enroll in the Central Michigan University Army ROTC program.
