    I was just wondering if anybody had any possible insight into ROTC programs at Northern Virginia Community College outside Washington DC, for the Army, Air Force, and Navy? I ask because even though I am doing very well at a four year college in another state, I was thinking about transferring to my local community college because it would offer me a chance to start on ROTC, and allow me to receive guaranteed admissions to VMI and other top educational institutions in my home state of Virginia.


    So if anyone could provide me more information on these ROTC programs for the various branches at NVCC, that would be great.

    Kevin: This is what the NVCC catalog says about Army and Air Force ROTC:NOVA

    The NROTC program in that area is at George Washington University and also supports Mids from Maryland, Howard, Catholic and Georgetown.

    I'm taking a summer class at NOVA now and I think they have an office in the admission building with all the military information. Here's what I got from the website.

    The U.S. Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) is an elective program that offers qualified students the opportunity to earn a commission as an officer in the active U.S. Army, Army National Guard, or U.S. Army Reserve while pursuing a baccalaureate degree as a full-time student. A complete four-year ROTC program is offered at George Mason University, and is divided into two phases: the basic course and the advanced course. The basic course, consisting of the first two years of instruction, is open to all NOVA students and is taught at the NOVA Annandale campus. The program emphasizes student learning and participation in applied leadership, leadership theory and assessment, decision making, management skills, time management, map reading, land navigation, first aid, physical fitness and health, writing, briefings, and basic military knowledge and skills. Once students have completed the basic course instruction, they are eligible to enroll in the advanced course of ROTC upon transfer to a four-year university or college. For more information, contact the George Mason director of ROTC at 703-993-2706.

    A similar agreement among the Air Force ROTC, NOVA and the University of Maryland has been established to make the Air Force ROTC General Military Course and/or Professional Officer Course available to qualified NOVA students who desire to earn appointments as commissioned officers in the United States Air Force. For more information, contact the University of Maryland director of ROTC at 301-314-3242.
