Air Force ROTC
Aerospace Studies Program Requirements
Enrollment in the General Military Course is voluntary for eligible students and does not obligate non-scholarship students for further military service. The Professional Officer Course is also voluntary, but is competitive. Because the Professional Officer Course leads to commission in the U.S. Air Force, those selected to continue training will incur military obligation.
Students who wish to enroll in the Air Force ROTC program must:
- Be a full-time student (12 semester hours or more).
- Be a U.S. Citizen.
- Be in good physical condition/health.
- Have good moral character.
- Be no older than 34 years upon commissioning.
Air Force ROTC Benefits
In addition to meeting the general qualifications mentioned above, scholarship applicants must be at least 17 years of age when the scholarship is activated and must be less than 31 years of age as of the end of their commissioning year. Because the scholarship program varies according to budget and needs of the Air Force, interested applicants should contact the Department of Aerospace Studies at 817-257-7461 or visit their website for specifics.
Air Force ROTC Commissioning
Upon successful completion of the AFROTC Program and baccalaureate or graduate degree, a Cadet is commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force. In some instances, active service can be delayed by students continuing in post-baccalaureate degree programs. Learn more about commissioning in Air Force ROTC.
