Elon University, in cooperative agreement with North Carolina A&T State University, offers an Army ROTC program and an Air Force ROTC program.
The Air Force ROTC program is offered entirely on the North Carolina A&T State University campus. Students must register for the required aerospace science courses through the Greater Greensboro Consortium program in the Elon University Registrar’s Office.
The Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps program provides a viable elective program for both male and female students.
