    I apologise in advance if this has already been asked/answered.

    For AROTC cadets who opt to branch into the Guard/Reserves (and are on a national scholarship), how long is their minimum commitment? I keep hearing mixed answers. I know active duty is 4 years active, 4 years IRR. Is it 6 years in the Guard/Reserve and then 2 in the IRR? Or is it 8 years with no time ever spent in the IRR?

    That depends if you have a scholarship or not.

    Scholarship: All 8 yrs are spent in the USAR/ARNG

    Non-Scholarship: 6 yrs USAR/ARNG + 2 yrs IRR
