    I know the AROTC scholarship can be used for either tution/fees or room/board. DS accepted a scholarship to a school where tuition is much higher than R&B. However, as a freshman, he will be eligible to comptete for a departmental scholarship that, if he were to get it, would make his tuition obligation much smaller.

    Is it possible to start with the scholarship paying tuition and flip it later to pay for R&B? It would be cheaper for the Army. :wink:

    He would probably try for the scholarship even if it didn't make a difference with tuition since it has extra academic "perks".

    I am not really qualified to give you advice, but you should probably ask the PMS at your school

    Each year forms are filled out as to how the cadet wishes to use the scholarship for that school year so changes can be made then.

    ^ Sound advice right here. You just have to complete the form with the HRA.
