STA-21 Program

Texas A&M is a MILITARY FRIENDLY University

If you have already been selected for the program, congratulations and see our welcome aboard information! If you are considering to apply for the program, best of luck! The NROTC Unit at Texas A&M University is an excellent choice for your college degree, continued professional development and place of commissioning. Texas A&M is a superb academic institution offering both technical and non-technical degrees. The college is a senior military school. However, you will not participate in other Corps of Cadets activities unless by choice. We have a long history of success with the former Enlisted Commissioning Program (ECP) and this forms our keel of success for our STA-21 officer candidates.

Here are just a few of the benefits of attending Texas A&M:

World Class Education
Great Education Value
Low Cost of Living
Spouse Employment Opportunities
Student Focus
Location
Atmosphere

World Class Education

Texas A&M is one of the best universities in the world, and a diploma from Texas A&M says that you have what it takes to succeed anywhere in the world. From engineering (Engineering Facts & Stats) to business (Mays Business School), Texas A&M has many outstanding degree options.

Great Education Value

Texas A&M is a state-supported university. What does that mean to you? It means that the world class education we offer comes at a very low price. Our average tuition for a full time student is about $8,000 per year. That’s right, per year. Many universities cost more per semester! Compare that to any other university of equal caliber. You’ll be hard pressed to find a better price for that quality of education.

Low Cost of Living

Texas is one of the cheapest states to live in. We have no state income tax, and sales taxes are very low. Housing is also extremely affordable. Your dollar just goes further here.

Spouse Employment Opportunities

Due to its constant growth and the abundant employment opportunities of Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas was recently recognized as having the lowest unemployment rate in the nation! That statistic is very important to a budding young family that has to move around a lot!

Student Focus

We recognize your true purpose for coming to Texas A&M: to get an education. We want you to focus on your degree. Although we depend on you to be role models and leaders for the Corps of Cadets, we do not require you to participate as a member. Your interaction with the Corps of Cadets will be limited to a two-hour training period every Thursday and a few social functions.

Location

College Station has the best of both worlds: small town and big city. College Station, Texas has about 120,000 residents, small enough to have a “home town” feel, but big enough to provide access to plenty of entertainment and necessities. If big city is more your style, College Station is centrally located between three of the ten largest cities in the nation: San Antonio, Houston, and Dallas.

Atmosphere

Last, but certainly not least: being in Aggieland. Texas A&M has one of the best college atmospheres, Aggie Spirit we call it. Make your college experience complete, attend a university with a rich tradition like Texas A&M. Texas A&M alumni pour millions of dollars in contributions into the university each year to support local scholarships and building funds. Why? Ask any former Aggie. The answer will probably be because it was one of the best experiences of their lives, and they hope others, like you, can experience it, too.
