What is Air Force ROTC?

The Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) is an educational program designed to give men and

 women the opportunity to become Air Force officers while completing their degrees. The Air Force ROTC program is designed to prepare you to assume positions of increasing responsibility and importance in the modern Air Force. 

Four-Year Program

Air Force ROTC is consists of four years of military education.  The first two years of the program, taken during your freshman and sophomore years, is called the General Military Course and allows you to try out Air Force ROTC for up to two years without incurring any obligation, unless you are on an Air Force ROTC scholarship. As you attend class, you'll learn more about the Air Force and the historical development of air power. The last two years are called the Professional Officer Course. These junior and senior level classes cover leadership skills and national defense policy and are intended to prepare you to serve as an active duty Air Force officer.
