Air Force ROTC Program

Air Force ROTC is divided into two courses of study (General Military Course and Professional Officer Course), and a 2-week summer Field Training leadership experience. The full program will take more than 480 hours over four years of college (including one summer for Field Training). Leadership development is emphasized throughout the program. Additional, off-site training opportunities are also available.
