  • ROTC transfer

    If you join the National Guard ROTC in one state, can you later transfer within your two to three year commitment to another state without losing your contractual benefits or being considered AWOL?

    Kinda sorta, but it's difficult and a royal PITA.

    If the state you are transferring to is in the same BDE, you can transfer. However, the new PMS has to accept you, your scholarship has to transfer and the Army has to approval the transfer since there is a monetary difference.

    If they are not in the same BDE, your pretty much out of luck b/c ROTC scholarships are dolled out to individuals through the specific school they applied with within a certain BDE.

      Is ROTC on a scholarship basis only?

        No, it's not. Plenty of cadets are non-scholarship participants. Usually though, they are having some form of financial aid (or NG TA, Green to Gold, etc) paying for their tuition and that creates another scenario.

        Now, let's say you are a rich college student who is paying for their own way to college and are not receiving any sort of TA, scholarship or the like. Yes, you can transfer you cadet contract to another school in another state as long as A) The school accepts you B) The new PMS accepts you and C) You get Army approval (because they still have to track your commission based on your FY cohort).
