In cooperation with Capital University, Ohio Dominican University is able to offer ROTC to its students. Students attend the Military Science courses at Capital and have the option to have a limited number of these courses apply to the students’ ODU academic records. Please see Cross-Registration - HECC and/or Transient Credit – Undergrad Students for more information regarding the process to apply these credits to ODU and the credit limitations. Despite the limitation on what may apply to the ODU academic record, students may take as many courses as desired through Capital’s ROTC program in order to achieve personal goals.
Courses in the department at the 100- and 200-level are open to all students who seek to learn more about the Army, contemporary military issues, leadership and citizenship. There is no military obligation for students in the first two years of the program.
Students learn through a combination of classroom instruction and experiential training and education. In the classroom, students learn of the history, traditions and values necessary to be a successful leader in the United States Army and in other professions. Basic soldier skills such as first aid, survival and land navigation are also taught. Students practice their leadership skills during a weekly leadership lab.
Qualified students interested in obtaining a commission in the United States Army, the National Guard or the Army Reserve may enroll in the Army ROTC classes through a contract agreement between Capital University and the United States Army.
Students may apply for Army ROTC scholarships. The United States Army typically funds a variety of two-, three- and four-year scholarships for highly qualified applicants. Contact the department for scholarship applications, a summary of the qualifications and the application deadlines.
Capital University is recognized as a partner in Nursing Education by the U.S. Army. Nursing students may qualify for Army nursing scholarships funded by the U.S. Army. Contact the department for scholarship applications, a summary of the qualifications and the application deadlines.
