I’m an Enlisted Soldier
If you’re currently on Active Duty as an Enlisted Soldier and you want to earn your Officers Commission, the Green to Gold Program is the place to start. Green-to-Gold applicants applying to Duke should apply Early Decision (applications due by 1 Nov) in order to get an admissions decision prior to the deadline for the Green-to-Gold packet (1 Feb). Those interested in Green to Gold should also contact the ROTC program that is nearest to their current installation for further guidance and instruction on navigating the Green-to-Gold Process. Campbell University in Fayetteville, NC is the Green-to-Gold hub for Fort Bragg, NC.

Army Reserve and National Guard
Those Soldiers in the National Guard and Army Reserve who are full-time students at NCCU or Duke are encouraged to contact us about signing up for ROTC. Through ROTC, you may have the opportunity to serve in the Active Army as an Officer, an opportunity not normally available to National Guard or Army Reserve Soldiers. Once you are a contracted cadet you will become part of the Simultaneous Member Program and will draw E5 pay during your monthly and annual training in addition to any Federal/State Tuition Assistance and GI Bill benefits you’re entitled to.
