ROTC Mission

The mission of ROTC is to develop the future officer leadership of the U.S. Army, and to motivate young people to become better citizens.

This includes recruiting, training, evaluating, selecting, and commissioning quality people for military service in the Army.

Nearly 70 percent of the commissioned officers in the U.S. Army are products of ROTC. As the largest single source of Army officers, the ROTC program fulfills a vital role in providing mature young men and women for leadership and management positions in an increasingly technical Army. 



TCC Army ROTC is a noncommittal elective course that provides a combination of academics and important hands-on training. You will be offered physical and mental challenges geared to help you succeed in college and beyond. You will learn teamwork and be given responsibilities like teaching younger cadets the same skills you have earned. You will also get paid while becoming a leader.

All cadets contracted to become Army Officer earn $2,500 - $4,000 a year while enrolled in ROTC as well as getting your college paid for and even possible bonuses.  Army ROTC also has room and board opportunities for on or off-campus.

TCC’s Army ROTC Program in partnership with ODU offers Military Science courses which cover the first and second years of military science. All classes are taught at Old Dominion University (ODU).

Upon successful completion of military science and baccalaureate degree requirements, the student will be commissioned as an officer in the United States Army, Reserves, or National Guard in one of twenty different career fields (Nursing, Engineering, High-tech, Infantry, Military Police, Transportation, Supply, Medical/Law, Maintenance, etc).
