Allen College

ROTC Program

The Department of Military Science at the University of Northern Iowa administers the Army Reserve Officer's Training Corps (ROTC) program. This program is available to Allen College nursing students. ROTC offers classes containing the basic concepts and principles of military science. Classes emphasize individual and small group leadership development, ethics, integrity and responsibility. Nursing students enrolled in the program have the opportunity to gain valuable, hands-on experience with Army Nurses during a six week leadership camp after their junior year of college. Students may apply for two-, three- and four-year ROTC scholarships which pay full or partial tuition and fees. Additionally, contracted students / cadets receive a yearly tuition stipend and a yearly book stipend. 

Scholarships are based on academic merit and winners incur a military obligation upon graduation from Allen College. The program is normally four years long and a commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army usually results. However, students can enter the program as late as the junior year if they qualify. There is no military obligation up to the start of the Junior year of ROTC unless you are a scholarship recipient.
