The Air Force and Army ROTC offer you a chance to develop the skills for success needed in the military and civilian worlds, such as confidence, self-esteem, motivation, and the ability to make decisions. We also have a Marine Corps Platoon Leaders Class (PLC) that offers you the ability to get commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps. Today, as in the past, many bright, young, ambitious students have the desire to be leaders. Are you one of them?

Reserve Officer Training programs are controlled and operated according to rules and regulations established by the service branch that sponsors them. These may be changed without notice or obligation. Students should contact the Admissions Office to determine program availability.

Embry-Riddle's Project Global Officer (GO) is an eight-week intensive language and cultural immersion program provided to ROTC cadets with a critical language focus. Project GO is an initiative sponsored by the Defense Language and National Security Education Office and administered by the Institute of International Education. The Embry-Riddle portion of this initiative is run jointly between the Daytona Beach and Prescott campuses. 

See the Special Courses selection of the current online catalog for details.
