The Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps produces leaders for the Air Force and better citizens for America through a military educational program designed to give men and women the opportunity to become Air Force officers while earning a college degree.

  • Classroom (1 hour)

AFROTC at Indiana State University (with cross-town agreements with Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology DePauw University and Ivy Tech Community College) is hosted by the College of Technology and taught by active duty Air Force officers assigned as ROTC faculty. Credits earned in the program can count as elective credit toward any degree program. All undergraduate students are eligible to enroll in Air Force ROTC courses;

Students completing the entire program receive a commission and enter the active duty Air Force as a second lieutenant. The active duty commitment is:

  • Pilot (10 years)
  • Combat Systems Officer (6 years)
  • Air Battle Manager (6 years)
  • All other (4 years)

Just enrolling in an AFROTC class carries no obligation - upon qualification, students may contract for a commission. Upon contracting, cadets become legally obligated to graduate on time and to serve in the United States Air force.
