Commissioning

This ceremony, in which the new Officers take their commissioning oaths, marks the end of a four-year journey of education, training, and self-discovery and the beginning of a journey of military service.

The December 2021 Joint ROTC Commissioning Ceremony is currently scheduled for Monday, December 20 at 5:00 p.m. in Memorial Hall.

Following the formal oath ceremony, each ROTC component will conduct individual "pin on" ceremonies.

All persons attending should be seated 15 minutes before the start. 


  Currently, VMI policy is that those fully vaccinated are not required to wear masks on post. All others are required to wear face coverings and practice safe distancing as per our AY21-22 COVID Matrix.

For the health and safety of all in attendance, we also request that if you are feeling sick or have any symptoms of COVID or influenza, that you follow the CDC recommendation of remaining at home.
