The Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) is an educational program designed to provide theoretical and applied leadership experience to become an Air Force Officer, while completing your bachelor's degree. Air Force ROTC is the largest and oldest source of commissioned officers for the Air Force. The organization's mission is to produce leaders for the Air Force. AFROTC is located on 145 college and university campuses, with over 1,274 additional schools participating in cross-town agreements that allow their students to attend AFROTC classes at an area host school. This program commissions approximately 2,000 second lieutenants each year.
To participate in AFROTC, you must be a full-time undergraduate student at North Carolina A&T State University or one of the other participating colleges or universities. The goal is to commission Second Lieutenants into the Air Force, after evaluating leadership characteristics and ensuring Air Force ROTC and degree requirements are completed. Air Force ROTC will help you develop both leadership skills and self-confidence, and give opportunities to compete for Air Force ROTC scholarships. Please see our New Students page for step-by-step directions on how to become a part of our team!
