Ivan Allen College is home to Georgia Tech's ROTC units. The ROTC has been part of the Georgia Tech community since 1916 and has trained thousands of officers for the Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, and Navy. Most ROTC courses are open to all Georgia Tech students.
ROTC offers a number of full-tuition scholarships to their cadets and midshipmen. These scholarships pay for full tuition, fees, books and other related educational costs including a monthly subsistence allowance.

The Air Force Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (AFROTC) program provides professional military and academic training for students seeking a commission in the United States Air Force. Though academic classes are open to all students without obligation, the AFROTC program for those pursuing a commission includes two phases. The first two years constitute the General Military Course (G.M.C.) and the last two years, the Professional Officer Course (P.O.C.).
Georgia Tech's Army ROTC program was one of the original ROTC units established by Congress in 1916. Today students representing Tech's major schools and disciplines participate in a military science curriculum that integrates the classroom with field training experiences. Cadets can volunteer for airborne, air assault, northern warfare, and mountain warfare schools during the summer.
The Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) Program, founded in 1926, was established to educate and train qualified young men and women for service as commissioned officers in the unrestricted line Naval Reserve or Marine Corps Reserve. Selected applicants for the NROTC Scholarship Program are awarded scholarships through a highly competitive national selection process.
In 1952, Georgia Tech became the first ROTC program in the nation to admit women.
