Stanford students have the option of participating in ROTC through cross-enrollment agreements with three neighboring universities. Under the agreements, students pursue their undergraduate degree at Stanford but complete the military portion of their training with the military unit at one of the host schools. Stanford provides students with travel assistance between campuses. Details on scholarship opportunities, the training program, and opportunities for service as a commissioned officer in the military are available on the respective service websites.
