The U.S. Army is seeking qualified students for commissioned officer positions in both active and reserve force units. The Citadel Army ROTC Detachment offers a two-year pre-commissioning program to qualified Army Reserve or Army National Guard members who are enrolled at the College of Charleston. The two-year program will require that the student attend military science classes one night a week or as prescribed by their instructor, major field training exercises, as well as a six-week summer training program (Advanced Camp) between their junior and senior years.

Upon completion of both bachelor degree and ROTC requirements, the student will be commissioned a second lieutenant in the United States Army.
