Military Science (Army ROTC)

Northwest has a cross-enrollment agreement with the Department of Military Science at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph. Northwest students can enroll in Army ROTC for Northwest credit and take the courses at Missouri Western State University and the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Any student can take military science courses for elective credit. Eligible students can contract with the program to pursue a commission as a second lieutenant in the active U.S. Army, U.S. Army Reserve, or Army National Guard. The Military Science program offers several two-, three-, and four-year scholarships that pay for full tuition, fees, and books. Contracted ROTC students may apply their military science coursework toward a minor in Military Science.  Contact the on-campus Military Science recruiter for information on the Show Me GOLD programs and scholarships.
