The ROTC Program of Morris College has a varied history in South Carolina. It closed at the Coastal Carolina College in 1984 at which time USC PMS began search for a new host school. In the spring of 1985, it contacted Morris College. Soon after, in June of 1985, the Cross-Enrollment Agreement was signed between USC and Morris. Since that time, Morris College has operated much like an Extension Center of USC. Upon the signing of the contract, 45 cadets were commissioned.
