The birthplace of this great country is also a state that prides itself in the numerous post secondary schools currently offering ROTC programs.

In Pennsylvania, an array of colleges offer ROTC Army, Navy, and Air Force branches for those students not willing to sacrifice their education for their desire to serve. Below is a list of all the non-profit, four-year colleges that agree students shouldn’t have to choose, and instead offer at least two ROTC programs on campus. The highlighted selections are to denote those programs that also charge less than $20,000 per year in tuition. Congrats to the following universities for successfully offering students reasonable educational costs along with service to one’s country.
