The Department of Military Leadership conducts the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps program (Army ROTC) for students desiring to earn commissions as United States Army Officers. Upon completion of University degree and departmental requirements, students are commissioned as Second Lieutenants in either the U.S. Army, the Army National Guard, or the U.S. Army Reserve. Army ROTC graduates may pursue careers in the active army or in the civilian sector of their choice. The courses are open to all students at the University of Massachusetts. Cadets are defined as students seeking a commission. They must possess University-sponsored health insurance or equivalent coverage and meet Army standards for commissioning. In addition, contracted Cadets are required to participate in a weekly Leadership Laboratory.
