Approximately 1,100 ROTC facilities are housed at university campuses across the United States (Today’s Military, 2017; Guide to Understanding ROTC Programs, 2017). ROTC provides individuals with the ability to dedicate time and service to leadership training and complete studies in a specified degree field. Poor stress management can significantly impair academic performance and persistence. This study was designed to answer the following questions: 1) can Stress Inoculation Training predict academic performance above and beyond personality and psychological variables in freshmen and sophomores enrolled in a military science program?”, and 2) “Can Stress Inoculation Training predict academic retention above and beyond personality and psychological variables in freshmen and sophomores enrolled in a military science program?” Data was collected from 38 individuals enrolled in a military science program on a university campus. Examining SIT’s impact on cadets in a military science program contributes to a new and growing pathway to examine retention rates, as those most likely to complete SIT were more likely to continue enrollment within the military science program and reported higher levels of academic performance (Kelly, Matthews, & Bartone, 2014; Robson & Manacapilli, 2014).
