Air Force ROTC offers students that graduate from the program the opportunity to serve in a tremendously rewarding leadership position as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force. Non-scholarship students may participate in the program for one to two years without signing a contract with the Air Force. In either case, ROTC years of service will provide young men and women leadership and management experience that will serve them well as an Air Force officer or a civilian in the private sector.
Several routes for an Air Force commission are available to college students in Air Force ROTC. Entering students may enroll in the four-year program, while students with at least three years remaining in college may apply for a compressed option. For instance, students who enter the program with 3 or 3.5 years remaining to graduation can commission on time provided they accomplish program requirements. Contact the detachment faculty and staff for more information on these various options.
