Louisiana State University at Alexandria (LSUA) is an affiliated program with the Northwestern State University (NSU) Army ROTC. NSU is the “host” for LSUA Army ROTC program. Freshman and sophomores attend classes at LSUA and labs on the NSU campus. Junior and senior level classes are attended at NSU campus. The Army ROTC courses are college electives focusing on leadership and management skills that will earn them a minor in Military Science. Upon completion of the ROTC program, the student will commission as officers in the U.S Army, U.S. Army Reserve, or Army National Guard.
If you’re a high school junior or senior and are interested in enrolling in Army ROTC talk to your academic advisor about the opportunity that ROTC can provide. You can find a great deal of information on the GoArmy (goarmy.com/rotc) website. Please feel free to contact us for school specific information.
If you’re interested in enrolling in Army ROTC and are currently a college student, you can start by talking to the Army ROTC Enrollment Officer, Mr. Raymond McDowell at 318.357.6501 or firstname.lastname@example.org located on NSU campus. You will receive a personalized plan detailing the Army ROTC basic or advanced elective course and about the incentives available, including opportunities to compete for two-, three-, or four-year merit-based scholarships.
Lateral Entry Cadets typically decide to join ROTC in their sophomore year of college, thus require Basic Camp, a four-week course at Fort Knox Kentucky, to learn what normal-progression Cadets have learned in their first two years of military science classes, during their freshman and sophomore years of Army ROTC.
Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP)
The Simultaneous Membership Program allows you to attend Army ROTC and serve in the U.S. Army Reserve or Army National Guard at the same time. It gives you an opportunity for additional training and experience. Cadets serve as officer trainees in the Army Reserve or National Guard while completing college. You can earn Army Reserve/National Guard pay and benefits in addition to your Army ROTC allowances.
No matter whether you are an incoming freshman or have already started on the path to earning a degree, ROTC has scholarships available to help pay for college. Contact Mr. Raymond McDowell at 318.357.6501 or email@example.com, for more information.
