Army ROTC is an elective course that may be taken concurrently with college classes—regardless of major—that results in an officer’s commission in the US Army upon graduation. Students should have at least two years of college remaining—there is no military obligation incurred by enrolling in the program. UC Berkeley is the location of these activities and has a cross-enrollment agreement with Cañada College. The units taken at UC Berkeley will count as general elective credits towards a degree.
