Living-Learning Community Focused on Leadership and Character Development

Traditions south lobby

All cadets are required to live in on-campus housing (unless approved for Victor Company or as an exception by the Commandant). You must submit an on-line housing application and deposit to be admitted to Corps housing. If you are not admitted to Corps housing or approved for a waiver, you may not be permitted to participate in the Corps of Cadets.

Cadets who meet the following criteria may apply to participate in Victor Company, which enables them to live off-campus. Cadets who meet this criteria will be considered for Victor Company, but approval is not automatic. Living on-campus is considered an integral part of the learning experience of the Corps of Cadets. If you apply for Victor Company, please make sure you have been accepted before you make housing plans.

You may apply to participate in Victor Company if you are:

  • Married
  • 25 years of age or older at the time of entering the JTLA

FOR FALL 2017 ONLY: Any Army ROTC Cadet who is currently enrolled at Tarleton State University, as of August 1, 2017, and is in good academic standing, may be eligible for Victor Company.

The Process

You will be admitted or denied as quickly as possible once your application has been received by JTLA. If you are admitted, you will receive a Corps acceptance packet with more information. If you have applied for Victor Company, please make sure you have been accepted before finalizing housing plans.
