Air Force ROTC
The Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) program is designed for college students about to enroll as a freshman or sophomore that are pursuing a B.A., B.S., Pre-Medical, or Pre-Law Degree. The AFROTC is a military training program for those that desire to serve in the United States Air Force as an Officer. The length of the AFROTC program coincides with the completion of your bachelor’s degree, which is traditionally three to four years long. When in the program you are required to be enrolled in two Aerospace Study (AS) courses every semester. The academic AS courses are conducted in the classroom and cover general military knowledge, military leadership, and national security studies. The Leadership Laboratory AS courses are designed for you to implement the knowledge learned in the classroom and practice leadership application in a military training environment.
