The Academic Program
Aerospace studies (AS) is part of the Air Force
Reserve Officers Training Corps (AFROTC) Program. Men and women who
successfully complete all requirements are commissioned as second
lieutenants in the U.S. Air Force. They then serve on active duty or
may, in some cases, obtain educational delay for graduate studies.
Academic courses are open to any student without obligation to the Air
Force. Two-, three-, and four-year program options are available.
The four-year program is divided into two phases, the
general military course (GMC-freshman and sophomore years) and the
professional officer course (POC-junior and senior years). Students who
have participated in JROTC or have had more than two months of active
duty may have a portion or all of the GMC waived. Students are under no
obligation to the Air Force until they enter the POC at the beginning of
their junior year. Between their sophomore and junior years, students
will attend an expense-paid, four-week field training at a continental
United States Air Force base and receive field training pay of
approximately $500. Students receive a $150 tax-free monthly allowance
while in the POC.
The two-year program consists of the POC plus a
five-week, expense-paid field training on the continental United States
before students can enter their junior year. No obligation is incurred
as a result of attending field training, and the candidate is paid
approximately $700 while in the continental United States. Usually
juniors and seniors are enrolled, but sophomores and graduate students
may also qualify for the POC.
The three-year program is the same as the two-year
program, except a student has an extra year to prepare for field
training and to try out ROTC with no obligations.
Expense-paid Air Force incentive programs and
specialized airmanship training programs are offered to qualified
candidates during the summer terms. All interested candidates may
receive free flight indoctrination through a local Civil Air Patrol/
AFROTC sponsored program.
A POC incentive scholarship is available to all
students who complete field training, will be under age 27 as of June 30
of their commissioning year, and meet GPA requirements.
In addition, various four-, three-, and two-year
scholarships covering tuition, fees, and books are available on a
competitive national basis to candidates in academic majors the Air
Force aligns to critical career fields. Current examples are
computer science, mathematics, engineering, and meteorology.
Interested students may obtain information from the
director at the AFROTC Building.
