Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets
Global, ethical leaders.
Now ... more than ever.
We trace our history to the founding of Virginia Tech in 1872, but our experience is modern, agile, and unlike anything else offered on campus. We are a four-year, full-time leader development program focused on building teamwork, character, and problem-solving skills that make a difference in today's world.
Choose Your Path
In the Military-Leader Track, you will train to commission as a military officer after graduation. You will be eligible to earn national ROTC scholarships. In the Citizen-Leader Track, there is no military obligation. You will apply the leadership skills you’ve learned directly to your first job.
Beyond the Classroom
Are you looking for a challenge for your college experience? Are you interested in leadership development and lifelong camaraderie?
Alumni and Friends
Active and engaged alumni are an integral part of the Corps' success, whether they return to speak to cadets about their leadership experiences, volunteer for or attend Corps events, serve as Class Champions, or, most importantly, become a mentor to cadets.
