Course Requirements

All members of the Corps of Cadets must be enrolled each semester in a military science class unless exempted for cause upon recommendation of the Professor of Military Science and by approval of the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Cadets are required to enroll for the military science course appropriate to their progression toward completing degree and commissioning requirements. (See "Requirements for Commissioning" section.) Students may receive advanced placement in military science for prior military service or JROTC instruction if needed for military and academic alignment. Contact the Military Science Department's Director of Instruction if you have any questions concerning placement. Female students and commuting male students not in the Corps of Cadets may enroll in one first-year military science course with the permission of the Professor of Military Science. Military Science 3200, Foundations of Military Theory, is open to all university students.
