The U.S. Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program prepares individuals for careers as professional military officers in the U.S. Army, U.S. Army Reserves, or the Army National Guard. By agreement with the U.S. Army, eligible full-time students at Tulsa Community College may participate in Army ROTC and receive an officer’s commission in the U.S. Army upon completion of a baccalaureate degree. Students enroll in the Army ROTC program at Northeastern State University-Broken Arrow but they remain students at TCC until ready for upper division classes.

Freshman and sophomore foundational courses are available to students in all majors who may earn six hours academic credit in Military Science and Leadership.

Financial Assistance
Financial assistance is available to qualified students. All uniforms, equipment, and most textbooks are furnished at no cost to the student.

No military obligation is incurred by non-scholarship students who enroll in or complete TCC courses. A student who successfully completes the Advanced Course in the Army ROTC program at NSU and receives a bachelor’s degree may be accepted for a regular or reserve commission in one of the sixteen branches of the Army.

The Army ROTC Curriculum
Course work covered includes leadership, ethics, management, physical fitness, and adventure/outdoor skills. In addition to academic studies, all students attend a weekly leadership laboratory. Military Science courses consist of foundational courses, advanced military science instruction, and optional elective courses. Advanced standing credit for foundational courses is available for students completing basic training in any service branch.
