Army ROTC

Covenant students may participate in the Army ROTC program at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC), enrolling for college credit and transferring those credits back to Covenant. The students will need to provide transportation to the UTC campus for course work.

Reserve Officers Training Corps. (ROTC) Military Science and Leadership Program is a deliberate, continuous, sequential, and progressive process, based on Army values, that develops Soldiers into competent and confident leaders. As the Army’s largest pre-commissioning source, ROTC lays the leadership foundation for thousands of cadets across hundreds of university campuses. ROTC is a leadership development program consisting of three interconnected components: (1) on-campus component, (2) off-campus component, and (3) Leadership Development Program (LDP). By design, the three components dovetail for seamless, progressive, and sequential leader development. The Military Science Department offers courses in general military subjects which may be applicable to any student regardless of his or her career intentions.

Program Objectives

The overall objectives are:

  • to provide general orientation courses open to all students in the basic course;
  • to provide selected students for the advanced course an opportunity to seek a commission in the U.S. Army, the Army Reserve, the National Guard, Nurse Corps or Chaplain Corps;
  • in conjunction with other college disciplines, to develop individual character and attributes essential to an officer.

Cost

A Covenant student must enroll in at least 12 hours at Covenant to participate in the program and receive institution financial assistance. The cost for the first year MILS courses at UTC will be included in the full-time Covenant tuition for 12-18 hours per semester (Covenant and ROTC course hours combined). If combined hours exceed 18 hours, an additional tuition charge will be assessed at the 19+ hourly tuition rate for every credit above 18, just as if you were enrolled in more than 18 hours of courses exclusively at Covenant. For subsequent years, the additional tuition charge for UTC courses will be the responsibility of the student, but these charges may be covered through scholarship from the Military Science Department. To apply for scholarship assistance, the student must communicate with the Assistant Professor of Military Science/Military Science Department Head or the Senior Military Instructor at UTC.

Uniforms and Pay

Uniforms are issued to enrolled ROTC students; textbooks for ROTC are provided. Issue items must be returned at the end of the school year or upon disenrollment from the ROTC program. Advanced course ROTC students sign a contract with the U.S. Government which requires them to complete the advanced course and accept a commission upon graduation. Basic course students may contract upon meeting eligibility requirements. All contracted students receive a monthly stipend commensurate with their Military Science Level while enrolled in the program, and approximately $500 for attending summer camp plus travel pay to and from summer camp. Scholarships are also available for qualifying students.
