Palmetto Battalion


The Palmetto Battalion US Army ROTC Program is comprised of four academic institutions:

  • The Citadel: The Military College of South Carolina
  • College of Charleston
  • Charleston Southern University
  • The Medical University of South Carolina

Military Science Courses are only offered at The Citadel and Charleston Southern University. Each of these courses are taught by a compressive mix of Active Duty Army Officers and Noncommissioned Officers, Department of the Army Civilians, and US Government Contractors.  

The Palmetto Battalion Army ROTC Program is one of the largest Army ROTC Programs in the country;  commissioning over 100 Army Officers a year. We commission Army Officers into either Active Duty, the Army National Guard, or the Army Reserves.

Our staff provides our Cadets with Military Science Instruction, Recruiting Operations, Logistical, and Human Resources Support. While most of our staff is located at The Citadel, CSU has one permanent Cadre member on-campus to instruct Army ROTC courses to all of the Cadets enrolled in the course.
