ROTC Options at CBU


California Baptist University conducts Army ROTC courses and some limited training on our campus. Students can enroll in Army military science courses at CBU just like they would enroll in any other CBU courses and obtain applicable academic credit once courses are successfully completed. The Army ROTC scholarship options are very attractive as they provide for all tuition, fees, some book expenses and a monthly stipend.
