Discussion in 'ROTC' started by Thomasjenn, May 9, 2016.
I was wondering if i need the SAT i didnt take it in highschool.
You don't say what branch of ROTC. With regard to the Army, I believe that you can enroll as a non-contract cadet without the SAT, but that limits you to the freshman and sophomore year. To earn a scholarship (2, or 3 year) you need to take the SAT or ACT.
The following is from the Army ROTC website regarding those already attending college.
ARMY ROTC SCHOLARSHIPS
THREE-YEAR COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS
The three-year scholarship is available for students already enrolled in a college or university with three academic years remaining.
Be a U.S. citizen
Be between the ages of 17 and 26
Have a high school GPA of at least 2.50
Have a high school diploma or equivalent
Score a minimum of 920 on the SAT (math/verbal) or 19 on the ACT (excluding the required writing test scores)
Meet physical standards
Agree to accept a commission and serve in the Army on Active Duty or in a Reserve Component (Army Reserve or Army National Guard)
Serve full time in the Army for four years
Selected Cadets may choose to serve part time in the Army Reserve or Army National Guard while pursuing a civilian career
Talk to your campus Military Science department about other ways to join Army ROTC and incentives available, including opportunities to compete for two-, three-, or four-year scholarships.
Find your school.
Yes Army Rotc. I am in college right now but decided to take a different path in my career
My high school GPA is above a 3.0, i just never took the SAT because i couldnt pay for it. Can i take it still? I called a recruiter from the college i am attending just waiting for a call back.
Contact the ROTC recruiting operations officer (ROO) to see if you can apply for a campus based scholarship.
If you cannot pay for the SAT there are ways to have the fee waived.
See if you qualify by checking this college board link.
You do not need SAT scores if you have established a college GPA. If you are coming to school this fall or finishing up your freshman year you should talk to the ROO soon about enrolling in the class for the fall. If their program is anything like mine we aren't going to talk about scholarships until you are enrolled in the class, showing up for all the training, and you've passed a PT test. SATs should be the least of your worries.
Okay thank you.
