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.

The time commitment for freshmen and sophomores is 5 hours per week:

  • Classroom (1 hour)
  • Leadership Lab (2 hours)
  • Physical Training (2 hours)

The time commitment for juniors and seniors is 7 hours per week:

  • Classroom (3 hours)
  • Leadership Lab (2 hours)
  • Physical Training (2 hours)

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.

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.
