Frequently Asked Questions (Cont.)

Which textbooks do I need to buy? – All required Aerospace Studies textbooks are free and provided via digital download when the semester begins.

What is the service commitment for joining AFROTC? – If you did not receive a scholarship, then you are not committed to joining the Air Force until you start your junior year of college.

Do AFROTC cadets have to live together in a specific dorm? - No, we do not have an AFROTC specific dorm. You will be assigned a dorm just like any other new student.

What can I do to prepare for the physical training? – Get in shape before the semester starts. All new cadets must meet the height and weight standards found here: http://www.afrotc.com/program-requirements/physical.

You can learn more about the Air Force fitness standards here: http://www.afrotc.com/program-requirements/fitness

When do I need a sports physical? – It is highly encouraged that you receive a sports physical and bring the applicable form (AIR FORCE ROTC PRE-PARTICIPATORY SPORTS PHYSICAL – AFROTC Form 28 – Attachment 2) with you on the day of orientation. New cadets cannot be issued physical training uniforms (PTUs) or participate in physical training until this requirement is complete. Sports physicals can be accomplished with your family doctor or at the Falcon Health Center (~$30; 419-372-2271).

What is the Cross-Town Program? - The Cross-Town Program allows Air Force ROTC cadets to attend colleges and universities other than the host university (BGSU). This allows cadets to complete a degree at a university while still taking part in Air Force ROTC officer training. Cross-Town cadets are required to commute to BGSU on Tuesdays for class.

Can I join if I’m going to be a sophomore in the fall? - Yes you can join AFROTC if you are already in college. You need to have at least 3 years left toward your Bachelor’s Degree. If you have 3 years left, you’ll have to double up on Aerospace Studies classes (register for AERO 1110 AND AERO 2110). If you still have 4 years left, just register for AERO 1110.

Do I have to wear a uniform to class every day? - Cadets are required to wear their uniform during Leadership Lab, Aerospace Studies classes, and physical training. Occasionally, during special events, you may also be required to wear your uniform. Uniforms will be issued to cadets.

Do I have to take the ASVAB? - No. The ASVAB is for enlisted entry testing. AFROTC will require you to pass the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test (AFOQT). The AFOQT is a standardized aptitude test (similar to the SAT and ACT) used to select applicants for officer commissioning programs. It is also used for

selection into specific training programs such as pilot and combat systems officer training. The AFOQT is a required test for all cadets. The AFOQT is taken your sophomore year in AFROTC program. It can only be taken twice. Examinees must wait 150 days between tests. AFOQT scores never expire and the most recent AFOQT test score is the one that counts.

Frequently Asked Questions (Cont.)

Do I have to go to ‘Boot Camp’ or Basic Training? - No. However, during the summer between

sophomore and junior year, you will participate in field training (it is required for all cadets who wish to continue into the Professional Officer Course). Field Training is an approximately one month long training camp. This rigorous program involves physical conditioning, weapons training and survival training. Field training offers you the opportunity to develop your skills as both a leader and team member.

Does my academic major matter? - No. Members of AFROTC study a wide variety of majors; some of which you would not associate with the Air Force. Some Air Force jobs require specific degrees, but many do not.

Does AFROTC pay for college? - No, AFROTC does not pay for college for most students. High school seniors can compete for national scholarships through www.afrotc.com. Once a student is enrolled in college, he/she may be offered the opportunity to compete for an in-college scholarship (based on availability). All AFROTC scholarships are highly competitive.
