Enlisted Members

Already in?

Are you a current member of the Indiana Army National Guard or Army Reserve?

Do you want to earn a bachelor’s degree from a top Indiana school?

The Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP) may be for you. The program allows enlisted members to participate in the Army ROTC program while completing college. Upon graduation, SMP cadets are commissioned as Second Lieutenants and can serve in the Army National Guard or Army Reserves in the state of your choice. 

The Army’s Green to Gold program is for current enlisted members who are active in the Army. In this program, enlisted soldiers have several different unique ways to earn an undergraduate or graduate degree.
