TWO YEARS THAT WILL PREPARE YOU FOR YEARS TO COME

During the last two years of your four year program Cadets will enroll in the MS III and MS IV classes which prepare them to take on the role of a platoon leader by learning how to lead their peers, learn ethics and morals of a good leader and the Military Decision Making Process (MDMP).  The summer of their junior year they will attend Advance Course at Fort Knox, Kentucky where they will interact with Cadets from around the country and further hone their confidence and leadership.

Cadets typically align themselves with the four year program but sometimes people find themselves wanting to join after their initial years in college.  The Accelerated Cadet Commissioning Program allows sophomores, juniors and graduate students to apply for the program and start taking classes and attend training.
