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 classes are held on college campuses throughout the United States and Puerto Rico; students can register through normal course registration processes.   AFROTC consists of four years of Aerospace Studies classes (Foundations of the USAF, Evolution of USAF and Space Power, Air Force Leadership Studies, and National Security Affairs/Preparation for Active Duty), 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.       

The AFROTC program is currently offered at University of St. Thomas, which has a crosstown agreement that allows our students to enroll in AFROTC and become full-fledged cadet participants.  For more information on AFROTC course descriptions, please review http://www.stthomas.edu/catalog/current/aero/ .  For more information on the AFROTC program, please review http://www.stthomas.edu/afrotc/ or contact the Department of Aerospace Studies at the University of St. Thomas at (651) 962-6320.
