The United States Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC), represented at CWU by Detachment 895, prepares students to be commissioned as second lieutenants in the U.S. Air Force. Freshman and sophomore classes are open to all CWU students. Upon completing a baccalaureate/master’s degree and all officer qualifications, graduates are commissioned and enter active duty. The Air Force is seeking qualified candidates in under-represented groups such as African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans and women.
Admission requirement Students from any academic major degree program with a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA are eligible . Enrollment in the freshman and sophomore classes creates no obligation to the Air Force. Students who want to continue in the AFROTC program after their junior year must compete for a Professional Officer Course (POC) enrollment allocation during the winter term of their sophomore year. Students are eligible to compete for an enrollment allocation into the POC only after successfully passing the Air Force Officer Qualification Test (AFOQT), a medical examination and physical fitness test.
Financial obligations AFROTC Detachment 895 requires a $75 uniform deposit prior to issuing uniform items to qualified cadets.
AFROTC competitive merit scholarships are available and awarded to both non-technical and technical majors. An AFROTC scholarship will normally cover tuition, fees and books. Those who have never been a full-time college student may apply for a four-year AFROTC scholarship at www.afrotc.com by December 1 (the year prior to attending college). College freshmen and sophomores may apply for three-year and two-year scholarships, respectively. All junior and senior cadets in good standing receive a monthly stipend, separate from any scholarships.
