A Bachelors degree is required to become an officer in the United States Army. Depending on previous experience some cadets may complete the ROTC requirements between two to four years of participation, ultimately graduating from college with a bachelor's degree and a minor in Military Science prior to accepting a Commission in the U.S. Army, the U.S. Army Reserves, or the Army National Guard as a Second Lieutenant. While many people can graduate from college, only a few will gain the leadership experience required to be an effective US Army Officer.
ROTC has 4-year, 3-year, and 2-year Scholarships, depending on how much college you need to complete for you Bachelor's Degree. There is also the Simultaneous Membership Program, in which a cadet trains with the U.S. Army Reserves or the Utah Army National Guard while participating with Weber State Army ROTC.

After you graduate from college, you will be commissioned as a Second Lieutenant. Your career as an Officer will be just beginning, and you'll find a variety of interesting Officer career fields, called branches, in the Army.
