Army ROTC is the United States Army's primary officer training program. The UAA Army ROTC program is a cooperative effort between the U.S. Army, the Alaska Army National Guard and The University of Alaska Anchorage to educate, train and prepare students to serve as officers in the Army, Army Reserve or Army National Guard.

UAA Army ROTC has two-, three- and four-year programs that lead to a commission as a Second Lieutenant. It is divided into a basic course for freshmen and sophomores, and an advanced course for juniors and seniors. Programs and courses can be adjusted to meet specific needs of individual students who wish to enroll but are past their freshman year.

Students enrolled in the program will learn leadership skills that are second to none.  They will be exposed to situations that will allow them to overcome fears and enable them to do things they only dreamed about. Aside from personal development, students also have the opportunity to earn academic scholarships including a $600-a-term book stipend and a monthly stipend that ranges from $300 to $500 a month depending on the academic year.
