To obtain a commission in the U.S. Army, students must complete the basic and advanced courses in military science and receive a Baccalaureate degree. The basic course of Army ROTC (military science) is offered at San Antonio College to prepare students to transfer to a four-year school to complete the advanced course portion of the military science course work. Upon completion of the advanced courses and receipt of their Baccalaureate degree, students may be commissioned in the U.S. Army. San Antonio College students may enroll in military science courses, with no military obligation, to develop and enhance their leadership and management skills. These courses are considered electives. Credits may transfer to four-year institutions for credit toward that specific institution’s military science requirement.
Laboratory hours in each course provide the opportunity to acquire leadership skills and hands-on experience to enhance each student’s ability to perform as an Army officer.
Although students taking military science courses at San Antonio College incur no military obligation, all students enrolled in Army ROTC classes will be required to participate in physical fitness training and take the Army physical fitness test each semester. Students will be furnished free of charge complete uniforms, and necessary equipment.
