Challenge yourself and test your mettle against your peers at competitions throughout the year: the Ranger Challenge, the Norwegian Foot March, and the Mountain Man Memorial March.

Additional Training

As a cadet, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in a 40-day training event at Fort Knox, Kentucky, where you’ll build discipline and confidence in your leadership abilities.

You can also pursue specialized training through a Basic Airborne Course, Air Assault Course, and Mountain Warfare School.

How to Join

You will need to be admitted to Ball State and pursue a major through another department in order to join ROTC. See what you can do to prepare whether you’re in high school, already at Ball State, or actively serving in the military.

Financial Aid

Through the GI Bill, you're able to receive generous financial aid to cover most, if not all of the costs of your education after you've committed to military service.

You have multiple options available to you, depending on what best suits your needs.
