University of Maryland, College Park and University of Maryland Global Campus have collaborated to offer prospective and current UMGC students the opportunity to participate in UMCP's Army ROTC program.
If you are a full-time undergraduate or graduate student at UMGC, you can take Army ROTC undergraduate courses on the UMCP campus and earn college credit. If you register for these courses, you can choose to participate in physical fitness training and hands-on military skills training, but it is not required. You can take Army ROTC courses for college credit without committing to military service.
If you are a full-time undergraduate or graduate student at UMGC and you would like to participate in the UMCP Army ROTC program, you will need to cross-enroll at UMCP. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the UMCP Army ROTC webpage to find out more about completing this process.
Cross-enrollment requires two documents from UMGC: a Letter of Permission and a Letter of Verification of Enrollment. You will also need a UMGC advisor's signature on a third document (CC Form 104-R).
You can also choose to apply to the Army ROTC commissioning program, which prepares you for service as an officer in the U.S. Army after graduation. In this program, you must take ROTC courses and participate in physical fitness and military skills training. The application process for this program is highly competitive.
If you are interested in taking your UMCP Army ROTC experience further and applying to the highly competitive commissioning program, you must first gain acceptance into the UMCP Army ROTC program and then meet the commissioning program's minimum eligibility requirements. You must:
