The University of Mary Washington is an affiliate of the George Mason University Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) Patriot Battalion. This is an elective program that emphasizes leadership and management skills, and provides the opportunity for qualified students to earn a commission as an officer in the U.S. Army while pursuing a baccalaureate degree. Enrollment in military science (MSCI) courses is open to all students, and no military service commitment is incurred by enrolling in lower level, 100 and 200 level, courses. Credit earned in military science courses count towards the degree as elective credits.
Enrollment in the ROTC advanced course requires students to enter into a contract to serve as a commissioned officer in the active or reserve component of the U.S. Army upon graduation. Because the ROTC program at the University of Mary Washington is affiliated with the program housed at George Mason University, some training will take place at the George Mason facilities.
