The Army ROTC program is based on a four-year curriculum intended to be integrated with the normal baccalaureate degree program. Flexibility is provided through a number of options and alternatives. These alternatives recognize previous military related experiences and provide accelerated or compressed instruction to allow late entry into the program.
The four years of on-campus instruction are designated Military Science (MS) I, II, III, and IV, corresponding to the freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior years, respectively. The Basic Course comprises the MS I and MS II years. The Advanced course comprises the MSIII and MSIV years.
