Because of the nature of these programs, students are advised to work with the financial aid office to determine whether or not aid is available to them for a particular program. Trevecca institutional aid including tuition remission is not available for semesters in which the student will be studying abroad.

All university students in the Nashville area may participate in the Army ROTC program at Vanderbilt University. While Vanderbilt serves as the host university, students enrolled in other area colleges and universities are not charged additional tuition to take military science courses. Grades are transferred back to each university and added to the student’s transcript. A Trevecca student who has successfully completed requirements for a Trevecca bachelor's degree program and successfully completed the Army ROTC program at Vanderbilt will receive a commission in the Army, as well as the degree from Trevecca.

Students who are enrolled full time at Trevecca may take Army ROTC courses at Vanderbilt University, and if credit is received for the coursework, transfer the credit to Trevecca. A Trevecca student who has earned a minimum of 18 credit hours in military science courses will have his/her graduation requirement of a Trevecca minor waived.

Students who participate in the Army ROTC program from area schools receive all benefits, privileges, and compete for scholarships on the same basis as full-time students enrolled at Vanderbilt University. Upon graduation, there is an active duty or reserve forces duty (Army Reserve or National Guard) obligation.

Army Officer Education (Army ROTC)

The Army Officer Education Program (ROTC) is a sequential and progressive academic program that provides pre-commission training for college-educated men and women who desire to serve as commissioned officers in the active Army, Army Reserve, and Army National Guard. As the Army’s largest commissioning source, it fulfills a vital role in providing mature young men and women for leadership and management positions in an increasingly technological Army. Admission is open to both men and women who meet mental, moral, and physical qualifications.

Training goes beyond the typical college classroom and is designed to build individual confidence and self-discipline, instill values and ethics, and develop leadership skills. The course load consists of one course per semester. Each succeeding year will address course topics in greater depth as students receive feedback on their leadership style and assume positions of greater responsibility within the program. Graduates are commissioned as Second Lieutenants. Upon completion of training, all commissioned officers will have follow-on employment in the Army Reserve, National Guard, or active duty. Educational delays may be granted for graduates who desire to pursue advanced degrees.

Scholarships. Students can earn merit scholarships in several ways. High school seniors can compete for three- and four-year scholarships through a centrally managed board. The application window opens during the summer prior to applicants’ senior year. Scholarships also can be awarded through the Army ROTC through a local on-campus scholarship board. All students are eligible to compete for scholarships. Scholarship students receive financial benefits that cover the cost of full tuition scholarships each year, an annual $1,200 book allowance, all uniforms, and a monthly tax-free stipend beginning at $420. All students enrolled in the Army ROTC program are provided textbooks and uniforms at no expense. Contracted non-scholarship students also receive the monthly stipend of $420. For more information, see the Web site at

Summer training. Students have the opportunity to attend several training events over the summer:


  • Cadet Leader Course — This five-week leadership exercise at Fort Knox, Kentucky, is a commissioning requirement. This course is normally completed between the junior and senior years. Travel, room, and board are provided free, and cadets are paid approximately $700.
  • Cultural Understanding and Language Program (CULP) Internships — Students are encouraged to spend a semester, special or summer session in academic studies abroad if feasible. Special incentives are available to further attract qualified students to these valuable programs.
  • Cadet Troop and Leadership Training Internships (CTLT) — CTLT Internships are leadership development opportunities for students who are placed with military organizations throughout the world to gain perspective and understanding of the role of the military officer.
  • Cadet Professional Field Training (CPFT) — Airborne, Air Assault, Mountain Warfare, Robin Sage (US Special Forces), Helicopter Flight Training, and Sapper.

Other training opportunities exist for qualified applicants who are interested.

Commissioning and career opportunities. A commission in the U.S. Army is a distinctive honor earned through hard work, demonstrated commitment, and a desire to serve the nation. Post-graduate military education, usually starting within six months of graduation and commissioning and continuing through the officer’s service career, begins with the basic officer leadership course that qualifies new lieutenants in their specific branch of service. Education delays are available for critical specialties requiring postgraduate civilian education such as law and medical degrees.
