Information For Future Cadets
ROTC cadets participate in a range of academic and physical training in addition to their classes at Marist. Cadets meet as a company three times a week to complete physical training and once a week for lab, which is tactic based and focuses on Army Doctrine. Cadets also meet with their MS class (based on their year in the program) to develop leadership skills.

Operation 24: High School Students
Op 24 is a program designed to allow prospective Cadets to experience a day in the life of an Army ROTC Cadet at Marist College. Students will spend 24 hours at Marist College and participate in MS Class, ROTC lab, PT, campus social events, and receive a briefing about the ROTC Scholarship process. Students will stay overnight with one of our Cadets.
An example schedule of Operation 24 is shown here:

Over 25 students that participated in this program received Army ROTC Scholarship offers.
There is no option to receive academic credit for Freshman and Sophomore year courses. However, Junior (MSIII) and Senior (MSIV) Cadets can receive 3 credits for their Military Science class each semester. Cadets must register and pay for these classes as they would any other course, however they are not required to. Cadets may also take these courses without credit.
All ROTC cadets must maintain status as a full time student by taking a minimum of 12 credits each semester.
