What do I have to do to enroll?

Here you will find some of the requirements to become a cadet in our program. Most importantly, all cadets are expected to live by the USAF core values of integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do.

Other Requirements


Cadets must pass LLAB and earn at least a C- in their AS class. Cadets must earn a 2.0 GPA or better to remain a cadet. Scholarship cadets must maintain a 2.5 GPA or better to retain their scholarship.


Cadets must meet Body Mass Index (BMI) standards and pass their physical fitness assessment every semester to obtain and remain on scholarship. Non-scholarship cadets need to pass their fitness assessment and meet BMI standards prior to field training (summer between sophomore and Junior year) and before graduation and commission.


Cadets must be medically eligibile to enter active duty. Visit the Air Force ROTC webite in order to learn more about the medical requirements.


While cadets must attend 80% of both LLAB and PT, 100% attendance is the standard. Cadets are also expected to be actively involved in other AFROTC events.
