All applicants must meet all eligibility criteria to receive scholarship consideration. Unfortunately, all applicants cannot be selected as finalists. Those applicants advancing to further scholarship consideration are scheduled for a personal interview and a medical examination.
Personal InterviewThe interview is conducted by an Army officer who will ask you questions and will answer any questions you may have about Army ROTC and the pursuit of an U.S. Army commission. The interview will be conducted over the phone or you may schedule it with us on campus. You must pay any cost for transportation, food and lodging for the interview.
Medical ExaminationIndividuals selected for an interview will be contacted and scheduled for a medical examination by the Department of Defense Medical Examination Review Board (DODMERB). The following will apply if you are scheduled:
1. You are responsible for your own transportation, food and lodging related to this examination. Results of the medical examination will be furnished directly to you by DODMERB.
2. If you are unable to report for the examination as scheduled, you must notify DODMERB immediately. You will be rescheduled at that time. Current height and weight requirements for a 4-year scholarship and subsequent commissioning must be met.
