Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) is a nationwide program that allows students to pursue commissions (become officers) in the United States Air Force (USAF) while simultaneously attending college. AFROTC is designed to prepare students to assume positions of increasing responsibility and importance while on active duty in the Air Force. AFROTC consists of four years of Aerospace Studies classes and a corresponding Leadership Laboratory for each year (where students apply leadership skills, demonstrate command and effective communication, develop physical fitness, and practice military customs and courtesies). College students enrolled in the AFROTC program (known as "cadets") who successfully complete both AFROTC training and college degree requirements will graduate and simultaneously commission as Second Lieutenants in the Active Duty Air Force. Multi-year scholarships are available for books, tuition and fees associated with various major fields of study. Students may attend ROTC classes on campus while enrolled in any of the area's two- or four-year colleges.
