Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC)

In partnership with the University of North Carolina, Charlotte (UNCC), we offer the Army and Air Force ROTC classes.

  • The Army sequence may be taken towards a Military Studies minor. Please check the Belmont Abbey College course catalog to confirm this. The Army ROTC classes are taught one day a week at the UNC-Charlotte campus. The Army ROTC leadership labs are taught once a month on a Saturday. Please note that a consortium form must be completed and turned in to the Belmont Abbey College Registrar to register for these classes and leadership labs. The forms are available here.
