Graduate Student or PhD Candidate

If you are a graduate student or PhD candidate, you are still eligible to participate in ROTC. As most graduate students are in a two-year program, we encourage you to contact us as soon as you have been accepted to one of our universities so we can begin the process of getting you enrolled. While graduate students are certainly allowed to join after the beginning of their first semester, we generally like to start the enrollment process during the late spring or summer before you begin your program.
To begin the enrollment process you will need to fill out a Prospect Questionnaire. We will need you to send this to us via email (, fax (202) 687-1109 ATTN:  Recruiting Operations Officer on coversheet, or turned into our office along with the following documents:

  • (For incoming students or transfers) Letter of acceptance to your university
  • (For current students) Current transcripts from your university

From here, we will arrange for you to take a physical exam with an Army approved doctor to determine that you are medically qualified to participate in ROTC.
The last step is to register for your military science class on campus at your university.
