Bridgewater State College students are eligible for Army ROTC classes through a partnership with Boston University. Bridgewater State students take their ROTC classes at Stonehill College.
Students may apply to ROTC in their freshman and sophomore years. Juniors may participate as part of an accelerated program if they attend some additional summer training. Graduate students may also participate.
Students attend class one morning per week. Physical fitness sessions are also conducted 3 times per week.
ROTC is a leadership training program whose graduates serve America full-time in the active Army or part-time in the Army National Guard or Army Reserve. ROTC students must be American citizens, in good health, able to pass a physical exam. A variety of financial programs are available through ROTC.
Please contact Major Allain for the latest information regarding scholarship availability.
Students with no scholarship award may still participate in Army ROTC. They will also receive the living stipend beginning in their junior year. Student may also affiliate with a local Massachusetts Army National Guard unit where they can receive pay, bonuses, and free tuition. This service is done concurrently with ROTC training and is called the Simultaneous Membership Program.
