Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC)

Northwest offers the Army Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) off campus at Missouri Western State University and the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

Army ROTC provides an opportunity for qualified college students to pursue a commission in the United States Army while attending college as a full-time student. The program also provides the general student body the opportunity to attend leadership and confidence building classes without incurring a military obligation. A commission as a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army, Army Reserve or National Guard is awarded to individuals who have successfully completed the ROTC program and obtain a baccalaureate degree from Northwest Missouri State University.

Northwest Missouri State University partners with Missouri Western State University to provide the Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) program to Northwest Missouri State University students. Other partnership schools include Rockhurst University, University of Missouri-Kansas City, Benedictine College, Park College and Avila College. These combined schools constitute the Pony Express ROTC Battalion.
