1) Can I pursue a Masters for the ROTC program? I already have a Bachelors
2) Would I need to complete the entire program, or is it shortened due to my being Prior?
3) When would I need to release from the Air National Guard? I am currently AGR and this is my employment.

Yes you can provided you meet all other requirements. How it works: go sit down with an Army ROTC enrollment officer at the school

Questions 1 & 2 are simple. Yes and yes. But I see nobody has touched question number 3. It’s a trickier question...possibly nuanced depending on your state, on your AGR job, and on supervisors’ flexibility. Best case scenario for you, if you’re able (capable) to do school and AGR at the same time, would be that you transition to the Army Guard and become a Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP) Cadet, and your state let’s you stay in your job as a Cadet. This would require significant flexibility and willingness on your (possibly new, depending on your job) command’s part; you’d not be MOSQ (AFCS Qualified) on paper; You’d still have your skills you’ve learned to actually do the job, but...paper & reports would say you don’t.

I’d talk to your command and potential command about it. Best of luck! As long as you are meeting your ROTC commitments, the ROTC program should not care if you somehow were also AGR.

(And, for possible naysayers, I’ve known cadets that were both AGR and Mil Tech. Not many...but a couple.)

Yes, you can complete your Masters through ROTC. You have to do a minimum of a 2 year ROTC contract.
