  • What is ROTC?

    Army ROTC (Reserve Officers’ Training Corps) is a program that can enhance your education by providing unique leadership and management experience. Students are given a valuable opportunity to build for the future by earning a college degree and an Army Officer’s commission at the same time.

    Army Officers
  • Hands On Experience

    Army ROTC cadets are taught to be leaders and are provided hands-on experience in managing physical, financial, and human resources. They often possess a higher level of self-confidence and superior decision-making abilities. Employers value these leadership qualities and prefer them in the people they hire.

  • ROTC Membership

    Your membership in ROTC says a lot about you. It says that you accept the challenges and responsibilities of leadership, that you enjoy teamwork, and shared success. It also shows that you are concerned about your future and your country’s future.

    ROTC Winning Team

Army ROTC (Reserve Officers’ Training Corps) is one of the best leadership programs in the country and can be a part of a student’s college curriculum here at the California State University, Sacramento. Learning to become a leader will enrich your college experience and prepare you with valuable leadership skills to help you succeed in college, the U.S. Army, and throughout the rest of your life. Along with great leadership training, Army ROTC can pay for your college tuition.

Army ROTC is an elective, meaning that you can participate throughout your freshman and sophomore year without any obligation to join the Army. You will have a college experience unlike that of your peers on campus. It gives you the tools, training, and experiences that will help you succeed in any competitive environment. Your leadership skills, intelligence, personal courage, physical ability, and determination will be put to the test, but when you graduate, you will be commissioned as an Officer in the United States Army with the confidence and ability to lead Soldiers.

The Forged Gold Program is comprised of the University of California, Davis and California State University, Sacramento.
