Military Science (ROTC)

The Department of the Army at Xavier University, Cincinnati, Ohio in cooperation with Thomas More College provides the opportunity for any qualified student to enroll in the Army's Military Science commissioning program.
 
Military Science classes are presented on the Northern Kentucky University campus. These courses are taken through the Consortium. Upon graduation and successful completion of the Military Science program, students will be commissioned as Second Lieutenants in the United States Army. No obligation for military service is incurred during the first two years of the program.
 
For further information about the curriculum and professional development requirements, contact Dr. Eddie Oestreicher at 859-344-3401 and he will work with other schools offering both Army and Air Force R.O.T.C.

  • 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.
 
A similar program exists in conjunction with the Air Force ROTC at the University of Cincinnati.
