Army ROTC: Leadership Through Knowledge

Army ROTC (Reserve Officers’ Training Corps) is one of the best leadership courses in the country and can be a part of your college curriculum. Being a student at Northern Illinois University and learning to become a leader will make your college experience even richer and prepare you for the future.

The Army ROTC at NIU is designed to give you experience in organizing, motivating and leading others – all while completing a bachelor’s degree of your choice.

Completing the program leads to a commission in the U.S. Army. However, students can enroll in the Army ROTC for the first two years (basic course) without a military service obligation. If you complete the advanced course, you are commissioned to serve in the active Army, Army National Guard or the U.S. Army Reserves.
