The Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) programs are an important means for the
education of military officers and are offered as an option to all interested UNO
students. Through these ROTC programs, the student may earn appointment as a commissioned
officer while earning his or her degree. Hours of ROTC credit may be counted toward
graduation in accordance with policies and programs of the individual academic departments
AFROTC is a nationwide program that allows students to pursue commissions (become
officers) in the United States Air Force (USAF) while simultaneously attending college.
AFROTC classes are held on college campuses throughout the United States and Puerto
Rico; students can register through normal course registration processes.
AFROTC consists of four years of Aerospace Studies classes (Foundations of the USAF,
Evolution of USAF and Space Power, Air Force Leadership Studies, and National Security
Affairs/Preparation for Active Duty), and a corresponding Leadership Laboratory for
each year. Students apply leadership skills, demonstrate command and effective communication,
develop physical fitness and practice military customs and courtesies.
College students enrolled in the AFROTC program (known as "cadets") who successfully
complete both AFROTC training and college degree requirements will graduate and simultaneously
commission as Second Lieutenants in the Active Duty Air Force. If a student enrolls
in the program as a sophomore, the program can be completed in 3 years.
The AFROTC program is currently offered at Tulane University, but there is a crosstown
agreement that allows UNO students to enroll in AFROTC and become full-fledged cadet
participants. For more information on AFROTC course descriptions, please review ROTC programs or Tulane University Air Force ROTC, for more information on the AFROTC program.
The Air Force offers excellent scholarship opportunities in a wide variety of academic
majors. For additional information or to check scholarship eligibility, contact AFROTC
Detachment 320, Tulane University, at (504) 865-5394, email@example.com , or visit www.afrotc.com .
Army Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) is a comprehensive program of studies
through which a student can qualify to be commissioned as an officer in the United
States Army, the National Guard, or the United States Army Reserve. Students learn
leadership and management skills that will help in any profession in the civilian
world. The Army ROTC program consists of a two-year Basic Course, which is open to
freshmen and sophomores only, and a two-year Advanced Course. Non-scholarship students
participating in the first two years of ROTC do not incur an obligation to the U.S.
Army. A variety of Army ROTC scholarships are offered. These provide tuition assistance,
a flat rate for textbooks per semester of $450, and a per month stipend ($300-freshmen
$350-sophomores,- $450 juniors, $500 seniors, up to 10 months per year). Uniforms
and military science textbooks are issued without cost to students. Scholarship students
are also paid for the advanced leadership camp they must attend before commissioning.
Summer training is available for outstanding cadets. Potential training opportunities
include Basic Airborne School, Air Assault School, Mountain Warfare School, and others.
Admission to ROTC is conditional on meeting academic, physical, and age requirements
(30 or younger for scholarship and 33 or younger for non-scholarship) as well as the
approval of the Professor of Military Science. Physical training is an integral part
of the ROTC program. Future Army Officers are held to high standards of physical fitness
To be commissioned as an officer, a student must complete either the regular four-year
program, a three-year program (whereby the Basic Course is compressed into one year),
or a two-year program (requiring completion of the summer ROTC basic camp giving the
student credit for the Basic Course). Advanced placement for ROTC training may be
given to veterans and to students with previous ROTC experience. In addition to these
requirements a student must complete at least one course in the area of military history.
That course must be approved by the Professor of Military Science. A student's length
of commitment to the military will depend on whether they serve on active duty or
in the national guard or reserve, as well as the whether the student will receive
a scholarship. Contact Army ROTC at Tulane University, Army ROTC, 200 Broadway, Suite
132, New Orleans, LA 70118, 504- 865-5594 or 1-800-777-ARMY and by email at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
The University of New Orleans offers the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC)
through a cross-enrollment agreement with the NROTC Unit at Tulane University. The
NROTC program offers students the opportunity to earn a commission in the Navy or
Marine Corps through four-year, three-year, and two-year scholarships, and through
the College Program.
NROTC scholarship students are selected annually on a nationwide competitive basis.
They receive four-year scholarships that cover full tuition, university fees, uniforms,
textbooks, and a monthly subsistence stipend. Scholarship students participate in
paid summer training periods and receive commissions in the Navy or Marine Corps as
Ensigns or Second Lieutenants upon graduation. New Ensigns have a minimum obligation
of five years on active duty after commissioning, whereas new Second Lieutenants must
serve four years.
For those individuals who were not selected for a scholarship during their senior
year of high school, the NROTC College Program offers another path to pursuing a commission.
Students are encouraged to apply for College Program prior to entering college, or
at any time during their freshman or sophomore years; students should apply directly
with the Tulane NROTC unit, and qualified applicants will be selected by the Professor
of Naval Science prior to each fall and spring semester. College Program students
compete for three-year and two-year NROTC scholarships, and they will undergo at least
one paid summer training period. College Program students are furnished uniforms,
Naval Science textbooks, and a subsistence stipend of $350-$400 per month during their
junior and senior years. These students also receive commissions in the Navy or Marine
Corps upon graduation.
Requests for additional information should be directed to the Tulane NROTC unit at
(504) 247-1607 or email@example.com.
Cooperative education is a federal program which integrates students' academic study
at the bachelor's, master's, and doctoral level with paid, career related work experiences.
The program bridges the gap between the classroom experience and the business world
at large. The term "cooperative education" (co-op) reflects the relationship between
the educational institution and the employer, both of which provide students with
a complete and meaningful education. It should not be confused with other work experiences
such as internships, externships, or practicums. Co-op is unique because it is a structured
program, has specific work schedules, and must include paid work experience related
to the student's major field of study.
Students are accepted into the program by meeting certain requirements. Undergraduate
students must be full-time, have successfully completed 30 credit hours, have an overall
grade point average of 2.5, have a declared major, and be able to commit to the co-op
program for at least two semesters. Graduate students must be full-time, have an overall
grade point average of at least 3.0, be enrolled in the graduate school, and be able
to commit to the co-op program for at least two semesters. Once a student is determined
eligible, a match is made based on student career goals and employer needs. Employers
are encouraged to interview potential candidates and make decisions based on students'
goals and the type of work experience provided. Placement in the co-op program is
not guaranteed; therefore, students are encouraged to interview with many different
employers before accepting an offer.
Students will work one of two co-op schedules: parallel or alternating. On the parallel
schedule a student works between 15 and 30 hours per week, and attends school full
time. On the alternating schedule a student alternates semesters (including summers)
of full-time study with semesters of full-time work. Work eligibility is based on
employer evaluation and co-op coordinator decisions. The College overseeing the experience
reserves the right to remove a student from the program at any time.
Once students are selected to work with a participating co-op employer, they are required
to register for the appropriate co-op class. Though this class does not carry any
university credit, it is an important part of the program. The addition of this class
to a student's transcript is an immediate indicator to potential employers that the
applicant has performed relevant work in his or her chosen field of study. For more
information, contact Career Services at 504-280-6225, or visit http://www.career.uno.edu/.
