Financial Assistance
Financial assistance is available through the U.S. Army Scholarship Program. Two-, three- and four-year scholarships are awarded each year to selected students who are enrolled or will enroll in the Army ROTC program. The scholarships provide payment of tuition, fees, textbooks and a monthly tax-free payment of $200 for the duration of the scholarship, not to exceed 10 months for each year of the scholarship. These scholarships are available for both undergraduate and graduate students. Non-scholarship contracted cadets in the advanced portion of ROTC receive $200 each month, not to exceed 10 months per year for two years. Students are furnished free textbooks for military science classes.

The Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP) allows students to be a member of a National Guard or Reserve unit while enrolled in ROTC. Advanced course SMP students receive E5 pay, plus $200 per month from ROTC, plus any Active Duty GI Bill entitlement.
