About University of Wyoming Army ROTC

Cowboy Battalion

Army ROTC is a physically and intellectually challenging program available at 276 universities across the nation.  We strive to make our cadets and program the very best of those 276.  

Our goal is to produce servant leaders of high character and achievement. Cadets will complete a curriculum of leadership training, while also completing an undergraduate or graduate degree.  The end result of completing ROTC and your degree? Commissioning into the Army as a Second Lieutenant. The available options after commissioning are serving on active duty, in the national guard (you choose the state), or in 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.

*If you are not initially awarded a scholarship, you can still come to our program and compete for available scholarships.
