Reserve Officers’ Training Corps

Ivan Allen College is home to Georgia Tech's ROTC units. The ROTC has been part of the Georgia Tech community since 1917 and has trained thousands of officers for the Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, and Navy. Most ROTC courses are open to all Georgia Tech students.

ROTC offers a number of full-tuition scholarships to cadets and midshipmen. These scholarships pay for full tuition, fees, books, and other related educational costs including a monthly subsistence allowance.
