If accepted into the ECP, you will be scheduled for a Department of Defense medical examination with a physician near your home and at no cost to you. Once physically qualified, you will be scheduled for training. Once accepted into the ECP program, students are required to attend the four-week Basic Camp at Fort Knox, KY, the summer prior to entering the program, for those who have not completed Basic Combat Training in one of the branches of the armed forces. All ECP scholarship and non-scholarship cadets who require this training are scheduled by the Army ROTC Recruiting Officer to attend. In addition, cadets must complete the Advanced Camp, a five-week training event designed to develop leadership competencies, the summer between the student’s freshman and sophomore years at VFMC.
