About AFROTC

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.

Vision

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

Mission

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

Goal

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

Service Commitment

Students completing the entire program receive a commission and enter the active duty Air Force/Space Force as a second lieutenant, unless a waiver is granted allowing service in the Air National Guard or Air Force Reserve. The service commitment depends on the career field a commissionee is placed into:

  • 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 or the United States Space Force.
