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.


To be the leading institution for developing leaders of character in service to our Nation


To inspire, educate, and train cadets to become leaders of character, committed to our core values of Integrity First, Service before Self, and Excellence in all we do


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.

Service Commitment

Students completing the entire program receive a commission and enter the active duty Air Force as a second lieutenant, unless a waiver is granted allowing service in the Air National Guard or Air Force Reserve. The service commitment is the same regardless of component of the Air Force and is:

  • Pilot (10 years)
  • Combat Systems Officer (6 years)
  • Air Battle Manager (6 years)
  • Remotely Piloted Aircraft Pilot (6 years)
  • Most Others (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.
