Air Force ROTC
AFROTC is a commissioning program designed to teach men and women from all academic disciplines to be officers in the United States Air Force. The Air Force offers over 200 different career specialties. The AFROTC program is divided into two phases: (1) the General Military Course (GMC) and (2) the Professional Officer Course (POC). The GMC lower division courses consist of one hour of class per week. The POC upper division courses consist of three hours of class per week. These courses teach communications, leadership, management, and organizational skills which can apply to either a military or civilian environment.
Once all POC and academic requirements for a degree are completed, the student may be commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Air Force. Commissioned officers must serve at least four years on active duty. Any student may take ROTC academic classes without obligation to enter the Air Force. Students pursuing a commission normally become obligated to the Air Force upon entering their junior year of undergraduate studies. Students on scholarship, however, may incur an obligation earlier. Scholarships, which are available on a competitive basis, may pay tuition and most laboratory, textbook, and incidental fees. In addition, AFROTC scholarship recipients will receive free room at Daniel Webster College. Scholarship recipients and POC cadets receive $300-$500 in a tax-free stipend each month during the school year. Other tuition assistance programs may also be available to POC cadets.
Students may enroll in the Air Force Reserve Officers Training Corps (AFROTC) program through the University of Massachusetts at Lowell. Students attend Air Force ROTC classes at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell, MA and at Daniel Webster College.
