Your Commitment

OSU Army ROTC students who contract to receive a commission in the U.S. Army must agree to complete a period of service with the Army.

  • You can serve full-time in the Army for three years (four years for 4-Year Scholarship winners, longer for those branching Aviation or those who ADSO)
  • You may request to serve part-time in the U.S. Army Reserve or the National Guard for eight years while pursuing a civilian career

Enrolling in the first two years of OSU Army ROTC Basic Courses (up to 4 semesters of classes) does NOT involve a commitment of service to the Army, unless you have received an ROTC scholarship that covers that period of time. You are not obligated to serve in the Army until you have signed a contract with our Human Resources Assistant.
