What You Need To Know About The ROTC Marine Program

The United States Marine Corps ROTC program is an excellent way to receive training and to get funding for your education. It is a method of a person to receive a college education and also to earn a commission in the Marine Corps as a 2nd lieutenant. It is a program that is lucrative in many ways and gives a lot of flexibility to a person who wants to attend the school of their choice and receive ROTC support and funding.


If you earn a scholarship then you can complete the rest of your education with the United States Marine Corps footing the entire bill that includes fees, tuition, and a small stipend monthly for other expenses. Some of the different benefits that are available for a person who earns an Marine Corps ROTC scholarship include; training to become a leader and manager, practical experience and military discipline, expenses and tuition funding help, and other training. Serving in ROTC also gives the Marine Corps a chance to make sure that candidates are worthy of being commissioned officers in the Marine Corps. Marine Corps Reserve Officer Training is featured at a number of colleges and universities around the United States, and Marine Corps ROTC training gives training and provides scholarship funds for young people who participate in the program.

There are different levels of Marine Corps ROTC program commitment, if you are not sure if it is something that you want to participate in then you can participate without any commitment.

You start the program and attend classes, and learn about the ROTC program, and you can do this for whatever length of time that you wish to. After attending for a period of time, if you want to sign a commitment, or apply for a scholarship with Marine Corps ROTC then you can do so. You have to pass a physical exam, and there are other issues that you have to qualify for, but if you do qualify, then you can apply for a scholarship.

Are you interested in an exciting career in the ROTC program? See if you qualify. Click Here Now!

After you finish your college education you will receive your diploma and then attend the Marine Corps OCS academy to receive your final training before receiving your commission in the Marine Corps as a 2nd Lieutenant. If you are not a scholarship student you can participate up until graduation without making a decision about long-term participation in the Marine Corps.

If you’re interested in the USMC, then you will need to join the Navy ROTC program, since the marines are a branch of the USN. To get the ball rolling you need to contact your school’s NROTC program and let them know that you are considering joining. They will have the best info for getting you set up.

My son is interested in the Marine ROTC program. He is in his senior year in high school. He has a 100% scholarship to Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. Do you have an ROTC program at Liberty or must he attend a different university?

The high school I attend does not have an ROTC program of any kind but I am interested in attending a college that does, but there is very little possibility of affording college without morgaging the house and borrowing money that I couldn’t pay back.

I am a Freshman in High school and would like to join Navy/Marine ROTC in college. I would like to be an officer in the Marines. I have joined Air Force ROTC in High School because that is what my High School offers. My intention is to study history in college. I am in a state (New Jersey) that doesn’t offcier Navy/Marine ROTC at any State University. Because of school/cost concerns I hope/need to attend an in-state college. What are my options?

Are there any colleges in california that offer ROTC for the Marine Corp or are all ROTC programs acceptable to any branch of the military?

military dot image Me    Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

@jacob shelly. teh Marine Corps is a department of teh Navy, so you will need to look for a Naval ROTC program. there are many in California, it being a coastal state. all i can name off the top of my head are UCLA, UC Berkley, U of San Deigo, and USC. you can go to http://www.cnrc.navy.mil/houston/NROTC.htm for more

Semper Fi and welcome to the orsgobphele! It’s great to see some Marines blogging and connecting with the masses. A couple things as far as wordpress are concerned. If you can turn on your RSS feature, you will be able to help us out in tracking your posts when they come out. Lots of folks use RSS readers to sort through literally hundreds of websites and blogs every day, and this is the optimum tool for filtering and going through all of that stuff. It is also what I recommend to private military companies when they ask about running a blog. Also, in order to gain top search in Google, it helps to get Search Engine Optimized or SEO. What that means is that in order to get heard’ out there, it helps to have multiple nodes that are all connected. So if you have Twitter and Facebook accounts, then connect those to this site, and also put links here to those accounts. A youtube account can help too. If you have pictures, a flickr account is great, because that is searchable as well. It is also wise to set up the blog so that every post you make, goes out to your social media accounts automatically. Google Search loves all of that stuff, and that will get your blog noticed out there.You will also be able to get the word out about a subject faster than those that wish to discredit the Marines or your opinion/policies. So if there is a news article that you disagree with, you can actually instantly address it via this blog. In other words, you do not have to wait for the next news cycle for a paper to print an edit or make a correction. The media loves to drag their feet before making corrections, just so the article has done it’s damage. You can present a counter argument or correction instantly.My other suggestion is to really keep up on watching the blog and other accounts. These things can get hacked, and an individual(s) can go back into old posts and re-write them or delete them or whatever. The blog can also be a nice little honey pot for hackers, if you would like to catch folks or monitor them. Also, for a simple and cheap analytical tool for blogs, I use Google Analytics. It is great for seeing what posts everyone likes, where your readers come from, etc. You can also communicate to others exactly how much traffic the blog receives. I use the tool a lot. I am sure DoD has their own deals for monitoring, but this one works great if you want something easy and simple to use. Take care and I look forward to future posts. -matt

Hey Christen, do your homework by reading all you can about the ‘job’ path you’re interested. This will be the school that you want to attend once in the military. Then, research each of the branches for that specific job. Only then, do you reach out to your branch recruiters for more info, ask questions and perhaps have a meeting. All to say, do as much research as you can prior to showing up on your recruiter’s doorstep. My best, Larry F.
