About University of Wyoming Army ROTC

Senior Army ROTC is a physically demanding and challenging Army training program available in 276 universities across the nation that produces servant leaders of character for our Army. University students complete a curriculum of Army leader training while also completing an undergraduate or graduate degree.  Upon successful completion of an undergraduate degree and all required Army training, Cadets are commissioned as second lieutenants in the US Army and serve a mandatory commitment on active duty, in the National Guard, or the Army Reserves.  There is no commitment to serve in the Army while participating in the first two years of Army ROTC unless the student is on an ROTC scholarship.  Prior to the junior year of Army ROTC, all students must contract with the Army in order to complete the junior and senior years of the program and agree to a minimum service obligation.
