The Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) are a group of college and university-based
officer training programs for training commissioned officers of the United States Armed Forces.
While ROTC graduate officers serve in all branches of the U.S. armed forces,
the U.S. Marine Corps and the U.S. Coast Guard do not have their own
respective ROTC programs, but graduates of Naval ROTC programs have the option
to serve as officers in the Marine Corps contingent on meeting Marine Corps
requirements. The Coast Guard has no ROTC program and its officers can only be
commissioned via the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, Coast
Guard Officer Candidate School, interservice
transfer from another U.S. military service following completion of at least 4
years commissioned service in that other branch of the U.S. military (e.g. such
as interservice transfers for officers designated as Army Aviators, USN and
USMC Naval Aviators and USAF Pilots), or via the Coast Guard College Student
Pre-Commissioning Initiative (CSPI), although the CSPI program is only
available at colleges and universities designated as a Minority Serving
Institute (MSI) or with a student population of at least 50% minorities for the
past three years.
