What does it mean to become contracted Cadet?

A contracted Cadet has enrolled into the program; finished and passed all the necessary contracting requirements (including 2.5 GPA minimum, pass the Army Physical Fitness Test, achieve height/weight standards, and receive a qualified physical assessment from the Department of Defense Medical Evaluation Review Board); signed the Army ROTC contract; and been sworn in by our Commander – at this point, you will have a commitment to be a U.S. Army Officer.
