Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) Programs
The Office of the Associate Provost for Veteran and Military Affairs (APVMA) oversees the Air Force and Army ROTC programs at UTSA.
Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) Program
The Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) program trains students to become scholar warrior leaders who make a positive impact in the world. This award winning program combines traditional college education with military instruction in order to develop exceptional United States Air Force officers. Multiple enrollment options give students an opportunity to participate in AFROTC without initial commitment for military service. This program is for students who want to learn how to be leaders. The AFROTC program requirements are described in detail in the UTSA Undergraduate Catalog.
All students in Air Force ROTC are issued books and uniforms for use in ROTC classes. In addition, most upperclass cadets enlisted in the Air Force Reserve receive a monthly subsistence allowance. Cadets may apply for Air Force ROTC scholarships, which are available on a competitive basis to those who meet the basic minimum requirements of a 3.0 cumulative grade point average, U.S. citizenship, passing a physical fitness test, and passing a Department of Defense medical exam. For further information, contact the AFROTC office at 210-458-4624. Walk-ins are also welcome on the first floor of the Graduate Studies/Research Building (GSR), Room 1.220.
Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) Program
The Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program gives students the opportunity to obtain a commission as an officer in the United States Army. The program offers the option of completing either a four-year program or a two-year program in Military Science while pursuing a baccalaureate or graduate degree in one of the disciplines offered by UTSA. Students who may want to try military science without incurring a military commitment can register for the first- and second-year courses in Military Science. The requirements for the Army ROTC program are described in detail in the UTSA Undergraduate Catalog.
The Army ROTC program offers competitive scholarships for up to four years to select students. These scholarships provide tuition, fees, book allowance and a monthly subsistence allowance. In addition, students enrolled in Army ROTC courses are furnished, free of charge, complete uniforms, texts, and necessary equipment.
