Simultaneous Membership Program

Are you a member of the National Guard or the Army Reserve and want to serve as a commissioned officer?If so, the Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP) is designed for actively drilling reservists or guardsman.

Many college students and professionals are soldiers in the Army Reserve or National Guard. In uniform, they contribute to our national security. In their civilian careers, they contribute the skills they have learned and strengthened to reinforce their success.

Participants earn to pay for monthly drill, and cannot be federally mobilized until completion of their ROTC training and a college degree.

Those who successfully complete the Army ROTC program can request to become Officers in the Army Reserve or National Guard. This allows them to pursue a career in the private sector of the economy while simultaneously serving as an Officer in the defense of our nation.
