A-STATE Red Wolf Battalion

The Arkansas State University ROTC Program is dedicated to developing quality leaders for America's Army. Since the Army holds education as such an important aspect of leadership, it has invested in developing leaders by funding the training needed to facilitate quality leaders. Scholarships and other Financial Aid are available to students seeking higher education.

ROTC Develops Leaders

A-STATE ROTC has a proud 85-year history of producing top quality leaders who have gone on to hold high paying jobs, public office, and high ranking military positions. Cadets find their full potential and become overall better citizens by commissioning into the Active Duty Army, Army National Guard, or Army Reserve.
