Simply put, Air Force ROTC is a college program that prepares you to become an Air Force officer. It's a challenge. It's an opportunity. It's a head-start to a lifetime of success within the Air Force, and a dedication to succeed in all you choose to do.

  • Form lifelong friendships

Air Force ROTC challenges your time management, physical fitness and analytical skills, and helps you push yourself to achieve your goals. For those who are up to the challenge, the rewards last a lifetime.

Program Details

The General Military Course (GMC) is taken during the freshman and sophomore years. This is a chance to take the Air Force out for a test-drive with no service commitment.
