The Department of Military Science at UMBC partners with various branches of the United States Military and academic institutions to give UMBC students the access and experience needed to begin or continue their careers as service members while pursuing college degrees.

The Army Reserve Officers Training Corps (Army ROTC) provides an elective course of study that allows full-time UMBC students the opportunity to learn problem solving and leadership skills as well as to ultimately earn a commission as a second lieutenant in the United States Army, Army Reserve, or National Guard while pursuing a regular college degree.  UMBC students can enroll in many of the courses offered without making a commitment to serve in the Army.  UMBC’s  Army ROTC leadership program will support the next generation of leaders for the Army and broader communities and the Army ROTC cadets will model the values, tenets, and successes of UMBC.

Advising and Registration must be done through the respective institution.
