The Corps of Cadets leadership training program develops well-educated leaders of character who embody the values of HONOR, COURAGE, INTEGRITY, DISCIPLINE and SELFLESS SERVICE, are academically successful, highly sought-after, and prepared for the global leadership challenges of the 21st Century.
Why The Corps?
The Corps is the largest, oldest and most visible student organization and leadership training program at Texas A&M. It is also one of the largest uniformed bodies of students in the nation.
The Corps of Cadets is Texas A&M’s premiere leadership training program and delivers the ultimate Aggie Experience. It starts with a world-class university with over 140 years of tradition and builds on that foundation, guiding cadets in developing their leadership abilities while enjoying the benefits of being at one of the nation’s premiere universities.
A majority of our leadership training graduates pursue a career in the public or private sector; however, the Corps of Cadets consistently commissions more officers than any institution other than the service academies. An average of 40-45% of our cadets pursue a military commission in the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps.
From international excursions between semesters to formal exchange programs between foreign military schools, the Corps of Cadets provides opportunities to experience the world from many different viewpoints.
There’s no better way learn about Texas A&M’s premiere leadership training program than to experience it firsthand. Check out our programs that put you in contact with members of the Corps and give you a firsthand look at the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Corps of Cadets.
AEP offers high school juniors and seniors and transfer students who are Eagle Scouts, Girl Scout Gold Award, Camp Fire Wohelo Award, or American Heritage Girls Stars and Stripes Award recipients a first-hand experience with the Corps of Cadets.
