ROTC Fulfillment Program

Upper level students who are not pursuing a military contract will fulfill their ROTC requirement by taking one pre-approved 3-credit-hour leadership-oriented class each semester during their Junior and Senior years. Each non-contracting student is responsible for successfully completing one ROTC fulfillment class in each semester in residence of the junior and senior year. 

All non-contracting students must take LDRS 371 as one of their fulfillment courses. Students who have taken BADM 371 for Business previously in substitution for LDRS 371 are in compliance. Please note, you can take LDRS 371 in any semester or your upper year at The Citadel along with your 3 additional ROTC F courses.

Please note, you can take LDRS 371 in any semester or your upper year at The Citadel along with your 3 additional ROTC F courses. Your schedule (3 + LDRS 371) will dictate that you take and successfully pass a total of 4 fulfillment courses including LDRS 371:   

Junior Fall: LDRS 371 

Senior Fall: ROTC Fulfillment Course

Junior Spring: ROTC Fulfillment Course

Senior Spring: ROTC Fulfillment Course

*if you are interested in using your ROTC Fulfillment courses to earn the Leadership Minor, please contact our office at 

The remaining ROTC fulfillment courses include two groups of classes: Leadership Studies minor classes (in Leadership Studies, Political Science, History, Education, English, Health and Human Performance, Biology, Ethics, Psychology, or Project Management); as well as high-impact practices classes such as capstones, internships, or undergraduate research classes. Krause Center experiences do not fulfill the requirement (LDRS 311 & LDRS 411).

If classes from a student’s major are included among the ROTC fulfillment classes, the student may use them to count both for the major and for ROTC fulfillment. A student may also use the fulfillment courses to also satisfy major or elective requirements, provided that there are electives in the student’s degree plan.
