Please note:

  • Your college/university may require you to be “force gained” into one of the courses due to conflicting lab times. If this is the case, contact AFROTC Cadre for help as soon as you are notified of the conflict.
  • Physical Training (“PT”) is held every Tues-Thurs 6:00-7:00 a.m. (except some Holidays). Cadets are required to attend at least two Physical Training (PT) sessions per week.  If you have not already turned it in prior to attending your first PT session, you must bring your Form 28 (Pre-Participatory Physical Form) to PT. If you do not have your physical complete, you will not be allowed to participate until the physical is complete and turned in to AFROTC Cadre.
