Reserve Officers Training Corps at Yale

Fall semester, 2012, marked the return to Yale University’s campus of Air Force and Naval programs in the Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC). Both programs offer courses and actively train on campus with a residential cadre of military personnel. Yale is proud to welcome these programs back to campus. Yale undergraduates furthermore have the opportunity to participate in the Army’s ROTC program at nearby University of New Haven.

For three centuries, the University has educated students from all walks of life who have gone on to leadership positions in virtually every field. ROTC programs open to Yale students help continue that tradition of leadership. You may wish to consider ROTC or related programs as a means of financing your Yale education and preparing for service in the military.

Scholarships and other financial aid offered through ROTC and related programs are among several financial aid options available to students. These programs are based exclusively on merit and may be of particular interest to those students who are not eligible for need-based financial aid. Yale students have been exceptionally successful when seeking entry into these competitive programs.

As you will see from the information on this site, we make every effort to ensure that students in ROTC and related programs can take advantage of the exceptional opportunities and resources a Yale education offers. We invite you to consider the programs available while at Yale. If one or more of them might help you to meet your educational and career goals, please feel free to contact the Yale ROTC Coordinator or the other offices listed under contacts for further details.
