- Student advising
Students enrolled in a Military Science program will have two advisors: a Military Science advisor and an academic advisor. The Military Science advisor will advise students only on matters concerning the miliary science program. Students must consult with their academic advisor on all questions concerning course and graduation requirements in their academic field of study.
- Academic Correlation
Certain bachelor's degree programs correlate directly with certain branches of the Army. Among those are Nursing and the Army Nurse Branch. Student whose career plans are in such a professional area should consult a Military Science advisor.
- Advanced Placement
Students may qualify for direct enrollment in the advanced course when awarded placement credit for the basic course by the Military Science Chairperson. Placement credit may be awarded in the following ways:
Veterans may receive credit for all or part of the basic course. (This includes current members of the Reserve or National Guard.)
Non-veterans can earn advanced placement credit by successfully completing the ROTC Basic Camp at Fort Knox, Kentucky.
The simultaneous membership program (SMP) allows participants to receive dual compensation from the Army Reserves or National Guard and the Military Science program. This program is available only to advanced-course students.
Advanced-course students are provided $100.00 per month subsistence allowance for each month they are enrolled in the program during the regular school year, up to a maximum of $2000.00.
A similar program exists in conjunction with the Air Force ROTC at the University of Cincinnati.
