About Air Force ROTC

Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) is one of the three ways somebody can become an officer in the United States Air Force and the United States Space Force.  The United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado and Officer Training School (OTS) at Maxwell AFB, Alabama are the two other options.  AFROTC is available at over 1,000 colleges and universities throughout the U.S. and its territories. AFROTC prepares college students for the challenges and responsibilities of being an officer in the U.S. Air Force.  The AFROTC curriculum is standardized across the country; students have the same training requirements regardless of where they attend school.  However, the AFROTC experience is shaped by the uniqueness of each AFROTC Detachment and the host university.   Visit for a comprehensive overview of its leadership development program, including program entrance requirements, scholarship eligibility requirements, and a list of career options as a second lieutenant.  There are nearly seventy career fields available to college graduates.  Popular ones include aviation, engineering, space and missiles, cyberspace, intelligence, and special operations.
