Prospective Cadets

Is Air Force ROTC right for me?

Air Force ROTC is a college program offered at more than 1,100 colleges and universities across the U.S. It prepares you to become an Air Force Officer while earning a college degree. But more than that—it’s a challenge, a head start on a lifetime of success, within the Air Force and in everything you choose to do. You’ll make the most of your college experience. You’ll hone your time-management skills, analytical skills and physical fitness. It won’t be easy. But if you’re up to the challenge, the rewards will last a lifetime.
