Army ROTC is both demanding and successful. As a cadet you will recieve hands on training and classroom training. You can also go to jump school or air assault school in the summer. When you graduate and complete the ROTC course you will be commissioned into the United States Army as a 2nd LT.

At PSU Altoona, ROTC cadets learn through realistic situations. For exammple, an ROTC cadet will be able to lead a team through the woods and battle against other teams using paintball guns. You can also lead PT in the morning.

The ROTC course itself is divided into 4 phases. The first and second phase is the generally taken the first two year. This is where cadets study basic principles and values of the Army. The third and fourth is taken your Junior and Senior year. This is the advanced course where cadets study military tactics, operations and leadership.

The ROTC programs at Penn State Altoona, Penn State Hazelton and University Park are all under the same battalion. That means that if someone is in ROTC at any of these commonwealth campuses and you need to transfer to University Park to finish your degree, you can easily switch to the ROTC at University Park.

The way to attend Army ROTC is to take it as a couse along with your other college classes. This class, unlike anyone will prepare you for virtually any competitive situation. This course is designed to be effective but not time consuming. That way, ROTC cadets will have the same college experiences as every other student.

Every Army ROTC Cadet who enrolls in the Advanced Course attends the Leader Development and Assessment Course. LDAC is a five week course over the summer that is similar to basic training for officers. This course takes place over the summer between your Junior and Senior year of college, when you commit to the Army, if you haven't already.

The college course during the academic year consists of Physical Training, Lab, and Field Days. The PT is generally early in the morning and this is where you do all your training to stay in shape. Lab is the classroom portion where you typically learn about Army ethics and traditions, depending on what year of college you are in. Field Days is where you go out and practice shooting and navigation skills, along with other important Army skills.

If you choose to enlist in the Army National guard in college AND do ROTC at the same time, you will qualify for the Simultaneous Membership Program scholarship. When you do this you will do all the regular ROTC curriculum and also do drill with your Guard unit one weekend a month and receive additional pay.
