Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP)

The ROTC/SMP is a voluntary officer training program designed to increase the number of ROTC officers available for the Reserve Forces Duty. Being an SMP cadet does not lock you into the Reserve or National Guard. In fact, SMP participation can make you more competitive for Active Duty.

In order to qualify for SMP, you must be a non-scholarship contracted Cadet or a scholarship contracted Cadet with a Guaranteed Reserve Forces Duty (GRFD) or Minuteman (MM) scholarship from the National Guard/Reserves.
