MSL 2003 - Cadet Initial Entry-Lateral Entry (CIET-LE) (5)

When Offered: Summer Session
At the month long Cadet Initial Entry-Lateral Entry Course (CIET-LE) students will be given the opportunity to learn, develop, and practice leadership within a challenging, stressful and competitive framework. The CIET-LE environment (similar to the Outward Bound program) provides students an opportunity to demonstrate overall officer potential and characteristics such as loyalty, duty, respect, selfless-service, honor, integrity, personal courage and leadership. Successful completion of CIET-LE requires a cadet to meet or exceed the standard in a variety of objective evaluations. Normally taken the summer following the sophomore year as substitute for the first two years of ROTC (ROTC Basic Course). This course fulfills the requirements for entry into the ROTC Advanced Course. Training is conducted at Ft. Knox, Kentucky, about an hour south of Louisville, Kentucky. Transportation and expenses are paid for by the government. To receive five hours credit, a student must register and pay a fee to the University.
Prerequisite: completion of sophomore year of college, cumulative GPA of 2.0, and selection by the department.
