Military Science - Two Year Commissioning Program

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments and Programs

For those students who are transferring into the University, graduate students, and currently enrolled students who have not taken military science classes, but desire to be commissioned as a second lieutenant, a two year program is available. Students enter this program through a four-week, paid, internship called The Leaders Training Course at Fort Knox, Kentucky. Attendance and successful completion of the Leaders Training Course is substituted for the Basic Course classes. The student is trained, fed, and housed at the expense of the government. The student also receives travel pay plus a salary. Contact the Department of Military Science for details.

Veterans need only to complete the Advanced Course requirements while they are finishing the overall degree requirements in order to be eligible for a commission. 

Contracted students in the two-year program receive uniforms and a non-taxable subsistence allowance of $450 per month during the junior year and $500 per month during the senior year.
