Students at La Salle can participate in Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) through a partnership agreement with Drexel University. The program is open to both male and female students who desire to earn a commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army, Army Reserve, or Army National Guard upon graduation.
Freshman and sophomore students take ROTC basic courses right on La Salle’s campus and incur no obligation (who are non-scholarship) to the U.S. Army by enrolling. Additionally, military science courses are applied toward graduation requirements.
Juniors and seniors enrolled in the Advanced Course take senior-level military science courses at Drexel University.
The primary purpose of ROTC is to commission the future officer leadership of the United States Army and motivate young people to be better citizens. Students enrolled in the ROTC program receive instruction in the fundamentals of leadership with emphasis on self-discipline, integrity, confidence, and responsibility. ROTC is the only college elective that teaches leadership and management skills that enhance your future success in either a military or civilian career.
ROTC scholarships worth up to full tuition and fees per year are available on a competitive basis. Advancing freshman and sophomore students may compete for twoand three-year scholarships. All junior and senior students with a scholarship receive $900 a year for books and education fees and a non-taxable subsistence allowance of $250-500 per month while attending classes.
