Reserve Officers’ Training Corp (ROTC) program of study will be offered to Pitt-Johnstown students during the 2018-19 academic year.

The regional program is run in conjunction with Indiana University of Pennsylvania's ROTC program.

The elective curriculum, studied along with required classes, provides students the tools, training, and experiences that will help them to succeed in any competitive environment. 

  • Eligible students can receive scholarships for full tuition and fees, in addition to a book allowance and a monthly stipend.
  • Two-, three- and four-year packages are available, as are exceptional benefits for medical school.

Students awarded these scholarships are obligated to attend training sessions and classes and perform military service after graduation. 

ROTC is considered a college elective; students are not joining the Army by enrolling. Upon graduation, students who have completed the ROTC course may become commissioned officers in the Army.
