Students entering the program enroll in Air Force ROTC courses in the same manner in which they register for other undergraduate courses. A formal application is not required. Students enrolled in the General Military Course (GMC) incur no military obligation unless they are on an Air Force ROTC scholarship. Those students desiring to become commissioned officers in the Air Force must compete for entry into the Professional Officer course (POC), which is normally the last two years of college. In the summer between the sophomore and junior years, cadets attend a four- or six-week field training session conducted at an Air Force base.
Field Training is, in most cases, a cadet's first exposure to a working Air Force environment. The program is designed to develop military leadership and discipline, and to provide Air Force officer orientation and motivation. At the same time, the Air Force evaluates each cadet's potential as an officer. Field training includes Air Force professional development orientation, marksmanship training, junior officer training, physical fitness, and survival training.
General Military Course (GMC)
Courses are offered during fall and spring semesters with two credit hours awarded for each freshman and sophomore course, and 3 credit hours for each junior and senior course. Four hours of basic ROTC courses may be applied as elective credits toward degree requirements at the school. Classes normally meet two hours a week. A one-hour leadership laboratory and participation in physical conditioning training are also required.
Students in the GMC do not incur military obligation unless they have received an ROTC scholarship.
