AFROTC Program Overview

Air Force ROTC is a four-year program that consists of 16 academic credits that are centered around leadership, management, history, current events, and Air Force operations. The US Space Force is included in the Air Force ROTC program and includes the selection process during the sophomore year and subsequent specialized training.

When to Start

Students are encouraged to start the first semester of their freshman year because they will have more opportunities. Specifically

  1. Apply for scholarships
  2. Boost test scores that are used for competitive career fields (i.e. pilot)
  3. Learn more about the military before service commitment is required

The Air Force ROTC program has strict requirements regarding graduation dates and requires a minimum of three years (six academic terms) until graduation. Contact us if your circumstance falls outside this timeline. We consider graduate students on a case-by-case basis.
