Some ROTC/SMP questions

My son will be going to UCONN in the fall for Mech Eng. He is thinking about doing ROTC. Whenever we have spoken with the ROTC reps at a college fair, etc. the SMP program comes up. Hoping that someone will be able to answer some of my questions:

1). If a student does the SMP program are they definitely considered non active while students? I would not want him to get called up to help out with a natural disaster, etc while he is supposed to be at school.

2) if a student does SMP, how is the commitment handled after the student graduates? Do they owe time to both the Army and the National Guard?

3) My son is interested in a program at UCONN called EUROTECH which is a 5 year program with a 6 month study abroad in Germany and a 6 month co-op at a German corp. Can he get a leave of absence to participate in this program?

Thank you for your help.
