Air Force ROTC Program Overview

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.
