Didn't receive a National Scholarship? Join CU NROTC as a College Programmer!

For students that are NOT recipients of the four year scholarship, you can still join CU NROTC. The GPA and SAT/ACT score requirements are still the same for this Scholarship Recipients and College Programmers. College Programmers receive the same training and are held to the same standards as scholarship students. College Programmers have the opportunity to apply for a 3- and 2-year scholarships throughout their time with CU NROTC. Many students elect this route and receive their commission! Although this path is very competitive, the work-ethic, study habits, and professional skills developed are equal to those who receive a National NROTC scholarship.

Your College Programmer application package consists of eight items and, once completed, should be submitted to LT Cook (Lance.Cook@Colorado.edu). 

Applications can be submitted at any time throughout the year!
