Overview of Army ROTC Colleges in Oklahoma

AROTC colleges prepare students for a life as a Second Lieutenant in Army, Reserves, or National Guard. While future cadets have options all across the country, the four schools described here are options for those who want to attend school in Oklahoma. With the help of various scholarships and tuition assistance programs, students are able to obtain military training while pursuing a college degree.

Cameron University

Cameron University enrolls a total of 4,846 learners, according to 2016-2017 enrollment reports found by the NCES. The institution also operates as an AROTC college for future army members. Incoming cadets have a variety of support options for financial assistance. Scholarships offer a full 4-year tuition, an annual stipend, a book allowance, and room and board waiver. The Green to Gold Program makes it possible for enlisted soldiers to return to school on a scholarship or non-scholarship while active or discharged. As part of the Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP), they may also be able to complete two school years as a full-time student discharged from the Army Reserves or National Guard.

Oklahoma State University

Oklahoma State University offers both degrees and a military option through its Army ROTC program. More specifically, cadets fund their way through college by applying to a 4-year AROTC scholarship right out of high school or by using a 2- to 4-year on-campus scholarship award if they're currently enrolled in a degree program. The Green to Gold program is also provided at this school as an active duty, scholarship, or non-scholarship option. For those who missed the first two years of AROTC, the Leadership Training Course is another way to start training in the summer and use a 2.5-year scholarship to complete the program in four semesters. Cadets who enroll here will join a public university that had more than 25,600 undergrad and graduate students during the 2016-2017 school year, per NCES.

University of Central Oklahoma

The University of Central Oklahoma has over 16,400 students, based on 2016-2017 NCES stats. Future AROTC cadets have several options to choose from such as 3- and 4-year high school scholarships or 2-, 3-, and 4-year campus offered scholarships. Another opportunity can be found in the 2-year Basic Course scholarship, which is used for the Cadet Initial Entry Training Course taken in the summer between sophomore and junior year. Both the Simultaneous Membership Program and Green to Gold programs are made for students who are enlisted soldiers. In the same instance, the 2-year Guaranteed Reserve Forces Duty (GRFD) scholarships only assist future Reserve and National Guard members with full tuition costs, room and board, book allowance, and monthly stipends.

University of Oklahoma

The University of Oklahoma offers career training opportunities to individuals who want to join the Army as an officer. There are a few beneficial tuition programs available within the Army ROTC unit, like the 4-year high school scholarship and the 2-year or 3-year campus-based scholarship for enrolled students transitioning into the military program. Active duty members or enlisted Army Reserves and National Guard soldiers normally choose from various funding options as it relates to GRFD scholarships, the Green to Gold Program, and SMP. Additionally, students who are studying any of the 70 languages listed by the Department of the Army may qualify for a yearly financial award through the Critical Language Incentive Program. From 2016-2017, NCES reports said the college's student body included more than 27,900 learners.
