ROTC courses are either categorized as a Basic Course (Freshman and Sophomore courses) or Advance Course (Junior and Senior courses). Any student may take Basic Courses and physical fitness classes without military obligation or prerequisites. Advance Course classes are limited to qualified contracted students.

Typically, with an ROTC scholarship, students take one three-credit class (2 to 3 hours per week), one workshop/leadership laboratory per week, and one overnight field exercise per semester in addition to their other classes. ROTC requirements also have students participate in physical fitness training (5 hours per week). The program provides opportunities to attend confidence-building courses during the summer such as the Air Assault or Airborne Schools, and summer internships.
Army ROTC classes normally involve one elective class and one lab per semester. Although the classes involve hands-on fieldwork and classroom work, they are standard college classes that fit into a normal academic schedule. These courses can help students with personal and academic decision-making while giving them the tools to exercise leadership in college life, even before graduating and becoming Officers.
