I'm in the National Guard (or Army Reserves). How does that work with ROTC?
Serving as an enlisted soldier in the National Guard (or Army Reserves) while taking ROTC is known as the Simultaneous Membership Program. Upon completing ROTC and graduating from college, these students are commissioned as officers and have options to continue serving in a reserve component (NG or USAR), or go onto Active Duty.
