Army ROTC Program

In partnership with Washington University, host of an Army ROTC Detachment, Maryville offers the Army ROTC Basic and Advanced Training courses to qualified, undergraduate, degree seeking, full-time students of Maryville University who desire to earn appointments as commissioned officers in the United States Army. As the primary school, Maryville will provide housing in one of the residence halls on campus on a double-occupancy, space-available basis, along with board for a maximum of four years of undergraduate, full-time study. New freshman or transfer students who are enrolled and have been accepted as cadets in the Army ROTC at Washington University, and who have chosen to receive the federal scholarship covering tuition and fees for this course of study, will receive on campus, dormitory housing. The award is not transferable to other on- or off-campus housing, books or other educational expenses.

Recipients are required to complete the FAFSA process, as well as a dorm contract for each year of study. With both the federal stipend for ROTC and Maryville providing room and board, no other Maryville University funding program will be made available.
