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 program is designed to prepare you to assume positions of increasing responsibility and importance in the modern Air Force.


Founded in 1916, Army ROTC (AROTC) produces 75 percent of all Army officers and has produced more than half a million lieutenants for the U.S. Army. It remains the broadest avenue for men and women seeking to serve as officers in the Army. An Army officer is a prestigious professional who serves as a leader of the most respected institution in America.
