Description

This session is presented by an active duty Army officer and will highlight two ways to go to college with military service. 

Earn the GI Bill while serving in the military.

Use an ROTC Scholarship and serve as an officer after earning a bachelor's degree.

The GI Bill is a benefit of military service and can pay for up to 100% of tuition, room and board and books. The ROTC Scholarship is a competitive scholarship program where students attend ROTC classes in college and then are commissioned as officers upon graduation.
