Tarleton's New Corps of Cadets

About the Texan Corps of Cadets

The Corps is a student organization at Tarleton State University designed for full-time students and is led by cadets. In addition, approximately 25% of the members in the program are women.

Cadet lifestyle is a highly structure program that is physically and mentally rigorous. Corps organized activities are designed to enhance teambuilding, resulting in pride, camaraderie and lifelong friendships.

All cadets wear a Corps uniform whenever they attend classes and will live on-campus in a newly constructed residence hall with group study areas and a private room and bath floorplan.

Members will be provided an exclusive opportunity to obtain a Minor in Leadership Studies, a concentrated learning experience to equip students with a foundational understanding of the key principles of leadership. The minor is offered in three tracks: civilian, military, and combination to best suit the student's professional career goals.

Join a rich military history at Tarleton and a proud tradition of excellence that began in 1917. Alumni have gone on to make a difference in their communities, our nation, and the world.

Scholarships are available for members of the Corps of Cadets. Tarleton sponsored cadet scholarships carry no military obligation, and are awarded based on both merit and need.

Program Costs

Fees in the program include a student organization fee (payable by check), plus meal and uniform fees (billed through the tuition bill).  Any portion of the uniform fee that is not subsidized, by the university or ROTC, will be the responsibility of the cadet.
