Green-to-Gold applicants must apply separately to UCF, Valencia College, and Seminole State College, in addition to applying for the Green to Gold program. Those interested in Green to Gold should also contact the ROTC program nearest to their current installation for further guidance and instruction on navigating the Green-to-Gold Process.
