Students who complete the ROTC Program may use 3 credits of ROTC courses to substitute for the GHA requirement and 3 credits towards the professional electives.

If a student drops from or is removed from the ROTC program, he or she may not normally use ROTC credits for any substitution.

The use of ROTC credits as professional electives is possible only within the General Option, since all other options provide restricted pools for these electives.
