Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC)

Pensacola State College, in cooperation with the University of West Florida, offers the Army ROTC program. Army ROTC is a challenging series of college electives that include instruction on leadership and management skills. The program prepares both men and women for responsibilities as Second Lieutenants in the active Army, Army Reserve, or Army National Guard upon graduation. A student may pursue any course of study that leads to a baccalaureate or higher degree. A qualified student may compete for two-, three-, and four-year ROTC scholarships. A student does not have to be on scholarship to be in ROTC. Anyone attending college as a full-time student can take freshmen or sophomore ROTC classes with no commitment required. For further information, please contact the ROTC office at the University of West Florida by telephoning (850) 474-2323. ROTC contains adventure activities such as paintball, helicopter rides, water survival, and rappelling. Physical fitness activities are required and are incorporated into the grade structure.
