ROTC Partnership Allows Wake Tech Community College Students to Pursue Military Careers

A partnership between Wake Tech Community College and North Carolina State University’s Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (Army ROTC) is allowing Wake Tech students to pursue a military career.Wake Tech Community College

The partnership – it sees approximately seven students use the program annually – lets students take courses through NC State’s Department of Military Science at the NC State main campus, paying Wake Tech tuition and reflected on Wake Tech transcripts.

And if students later transfer to NC State, the credits may be used toward a military science minor.

Wake Tech students can compete for 2 or 3-year Army ROTC scholarships to complete their degree at NC State and commission as Army officers. NC State Army ROTC cadets can pursue a commission into the U.S Army, U.S. Army Reserve, or the North Carolina Army National Guard, and if they choose to join a commissioning program, they are considered for programs with stipends and scholarships.

“Annually, we award over half a million dollars in scholarships and financial assistance to recognize the potential of these future officers and financially support their academic and ROTC pursuits.” said Lt. Col. Will Cunningham, NC State’s Army ROTC Professor of Military Science. “Wake Tech Army ROTC Cadets are exceptional members of our team and we look forward to continuing this great partnership.”
