DEPARTMENT OF AEROSPACE STUDIES (US AIR FORCE ROTC)

Lt. Col. Glenn A. Swilling, Chairperson, 306 Wright Annex

Students may obtain consent of the chairperson of the Department of Aerospace Studies prior to enrolling in an aerospace studies course if prerequisites for the course have not been met.

RESERVE OFFICER TRAINING PROGRAMS

In 1948, the Board of Trustees of East Carolina University entered into an agreement with the Department of the Air Force to establish and maintain a US Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps.

The Department of Aerospace Studies is an integral academic subdivision of East Carolina University and includes all US Air Force ROTC activities conducted at the institution as stipulated in the contract with the US Air Force.

The purpose of the Department of Aerospace Studies is to prepare students, through a permanent program of instruction, to serve as commissioned officers in the US Air Force.

East Carolina University offers two‑ and four‑year Air Force ROTC programs for men and women.† Upon successful completion of either program and graduation from college, cadets will be commissioned second lieutenants in the US Air Force.† Individuals with prior military service are encouraged to apply.

During the last two years of the program, qualified students receive $1,500 per semester for tuition and books as well as $150 per month. Cadets in the two‑ and four‑year programs are eligible for the college scholarship program, which provides full tuition, and most laboratory, textbooks, and incidental fees, plus $200 per month in nontaxable allowance.

DEPARTMENT OF MILITARY SCIENCE (US ARMY ROTC)

Army Reserve Officer Training Corps Program

Lt. Col. George M. Jenkins, Chairperson, 343 Rawl

In 1982, East Carolina University was established as an extension center for North Carolina State University's US Army Reserve Officer Training Corps Program.† East Carolina University Army ROTC was granted Host Status as of October 1996.

The Department of Military Science is an integral academic subdivision of the School of Industry and Technology and offers unique instruction designed to apply the principles of leadership.† Students are challenged early in their ROTC training to develop sound judgment and maturity, accept responsibility, learn basic managerial principles, and gain self-confidence.

The mission of the Department of Military Science is to train college men and women to become commissioned officers in the US Army, Army National Guard, and US Army Reserve.† The US Army ROTC program consists of a voluntary two-year basic course (freshman and sophomore level) and a two-year advanced course (junior and senior level), which includes a five-week summer camp prior to the final year.† Service veterans are eligible for placement into the advanced course if they are classified as academic juniors.

The Department of Military Science offers two- and four-year US Army ROTC programs for men and women.† Upon successful completion of either program and graduation from college, the cadet will be commissioned a second lieutenant and may serve in either the National Guard, US Army Reserve, or US Army.† The university names outstanding US Army ROTC students as Distinguished Military Graduates.

Required uniforms and military science texts are provided by the federal government at no cost to the student.† Elective credit is received for all courses.† The advanced program is the last two years of the program.† During these last two academic years of the program, qualified cadets will receive $200 per month.† Three- and two-year scholarships, which provide full tuition and fees, $225 per semester for books and supplies, and $200 per month in nontaxable pay, are available for those who qualify.

Eligibility

All university students may enroll in the military science basic course without an obligation to the US Army.† To be eligible for participation in the advanced course, an applicant must be enrolled as a full-time student at East Carolina University; be in good academic standing with the university; be physically qualified; must have satisfactorily completed the basic course or an equivalent; and must have a minimum of two years remaining as a full-time student at either the undergraduate or graduate level.† In addition, applicants must be commissioned by their thirtieth birthday.

How to Apply for Army ROTC

Students applying for the four-year program must register for US Army ROTC in the same manner and at the same time as they register for other university courses.

Students interested in applying for the two-year program must contact a US Army ROTC representative in 346 Rawl.† The student must have at least two academic years of study remaining at the undergraduate or graduate level.

Army ROTC College Scholarship Program

The Department of Military Science offers three- and two-year college scholarships for students enrolled at East Carolina University. Scholarships are offered in the amount of $16,000 per year and include laboratory expenses, incidental fees, and $225 per semester for books and supplies.† Students also receive ten payments of $200 a month in nontaxable pay during each annual period of the scholarships.† To apply for a three- or two-year US Army ROTC scholarship, a student should contact the ECU US Army ROTC enrollment officer in 344 Rawl; telephone 252-328-4180. Four-year scholarships are available to incoming freshmen who apply during high school and who meet requirements.

Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP)

SMP allows students to be members of the US Army National Guard or the US Army Reserve and US Army ROTC at the same time.† Students enlisted in the US Army National Guard and US Army Reserve may take advantage of this program and enroll directly into the advanced course.† Advanced ROTC SMP students are paid approximately $150 per month for one weekend of Army Reserve or National Guard training, plus up to $2,000 a year subsistence allowance from the ROTC advanced course.† In addition, they receive $1,000 per year tuition assistance from the North Carolina National Guard.† They serve as officer trainees in their guard or reserve units under the close supervision of a commissioned officer.
