Non-Scholarship Program

Cadets entering the Advanced Course need to make a commitment to serve in either the Active Army or in the Reserves. Normally this commitment is made by the choice of scholarships taken. Some cadets, for one reason or another, may opt not to take a scholarship. By doing this they delay the decision about serving in the active Army or in the Reserves or Guard until just before their senior year. They will be contracted to serve none-the-less. This may be an attractive option if a cadet wants more time to decide.
