Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP)

SMP is a volunteer officer training program designed to increase the number of ROTC officers available for Reserve Forces Duty. It allows Cadets to drill with Army Guard or Reserve units as an officer trainee while attending college and ROTC. Cadets participate in the training and activities of the unit but are in a non-deployable status. Should the Reserve or National Guard unit deploy, and the Soldier/Cadet is contracted into the SMP ROTC program, the Soldier/Cadet will not be required to deploy.
This program is for both prior service Soldiers in the Army Guard or Army Reserve as well as Cadets without experience or prior service. It benefits the future officer with leadership and Reserve Component unit experience.
