I created an account just to get help. I searched all over the internet and talked to multiple people about it and still couldn't find a sure answer. Recently I was awarded the 3 year scholarship for ROTC. The program I am doing in college is a 5 year engineering program and I was given an option by my recruiter to enlist in the army reserves to pay for my freshman year of college because the scholarship doesn't kick in until my sophomore year. He gave me the option to do the SMP program which allows me to attend basic training and go to college in the fall. What I want to know is if it is possible to do SMP for my first year of college and use the 3 year scholarship right after. Another thing my scholarship and enrollment officer stated when I talked to him is that they will extend my three year to a four year if I continue to do well because I am in a five year program.
