Department of Military Science:
Admission Requirements

Graduate students whose anticipated tenure at SFA is two years may participate in the pre-commissioning two-year program. They should bear in mind, though, that the courses required in the military science program are not creditable for graduate degrees. The student’s graduate program should be planned accordingly.

An interview with the department chair and a physical examination are required. A veteran of any military service, students who participated in any service ROTC, and those who participated in JROTC in high school are eligible to receive credit for the basic course of Army ROTC (first two years). If this does not apply, the student may attend the Leaders Training Course at Fort Knox, Ky., for five weeks during the summer. The Department of the Army pays travel to and from Fort Knox, and the student receives pay and allowances during the period of attendance.

The student receives a tax-free stipend of $450-500 per month while participating in the military science program. The student will attend the Leadership Development and Assessment Course during the summer between the two years of military science instruction.

All uniforms and equipment are issued by the Department of Military Science at no charge to the student. A number of government-funded postgraduate study programs are available to qualified students who complete the commissioning requirements.

Additional information concerning this program may be obtained in person at the Military Science Building, or by contacting the Department of Military Science at P.O. Box 13059, SFA Station, Nacogdoches, TX 75962 or (936) 468-4505.
