Texas Army National Guard

Simultaneous Membership Program

The Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP)allows our National Guard Cadets to contract through the Texas Tech University Army ROTC program en route to becoming Commissioned Officers. As a member of the National Guard our Cadets will gain crucial knowledge through our officer mentorship program within their assigned units along with the training received through the Texas Tech University Army ROTC program. Our National Guard Cadets commitment is only one weekend per month and two weeks during the summer time, which allows our Cadets to be full time college students.
