Building Alaska's Workforce

The UAA Army ROTC program is part of the UAA Community & Technical College. Together, we're Building Alaska’s Workforce and fostering student success through quality education and technical training.

Join the Army ROTC program


Army ROTC is the United States Army's primary officer training program. The University of Alaska Anchorage 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. The program 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.

Cadet Spotlight

“Participating in the Ranger Challenge is a testimony to the cadets’ dedication. They have put in many extra hours above an already demanding fitness schedule to prepare themselves physically and mentally for the competition.”

— Capt. Chad Ausel, speaking of cadets' fall 2014 Ranger Challenge regional win
