Hey all, I’ve read on many ROTC university websites, and been told by an ROTC recruiter, that public colleges/universities offer a tuition waiver to rotc cadets, regardless of whether or not they plan to commission through ROTC. The only stipulation seems to be if the cadet passes the pft and maintains a 2.5 gpa. It’s not posed as a scholarship so much as an arrangement with public schools. This sounds too good to be true. I mean, I’d like to commission through ROTC, but if I decided not to while in the last year of my program, I could opt out? Is this a difficult option to apply for, or is it pretty much automatic if one signs up for ROTC classes and has a good gpa? FYI I’m specifically looking at public schools for a graduate degree in Illinois, possibly Wisconsin, Indiana, or Minnesota as well. Oh, and how does this work with programs like SMP? I’m non-prior but it sounds really great to drill once a month and learn more and make a little more money. Thanks!
