Military Science - Air Force ROTC
The Air Force Reserve Office Training Corps (AFROTC) program at Keystone College permits students to earn commissions as officers in the United States Air Force while pursuing a college degree. You may enroll in either the four-year or two-year program.
The program teaches and emphasizes teamwork, responsibility, time management, physical fitness, and leadership. The entire curriculum is based upon the Air Force Core Values: Integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do. The program is set up in a way which stresses learning from others and the leadership skills learned will help to make you more competitive in the civilian world after graduating.
The Air Force Reserve Officers Training Corps (AFROTC) is located in the Air and Space Studies Department of Wilkes University and supports student cadets from fourteen colleges and universities in Northeast Pennsylvania, including Keystone.
The four-year program permits students to enter the AFROTC program in their freshman or sophomore year. Students with three years remaining until graduation may enroll concurrently in the freshman and sophomore aerospace studies courses and can complete the four-year program in three years.
The two-year program is available for students who have at least two years remaining until graduation. Students interested in enrolling in the two-year program should contact the AFROTC department no later than the spring semester of their sophomore year.
Students who satisfactorily complete the POC curriculum requirements are commissioned as Second Lieutenants in the U.S. Air Force, and will serve on active duty in a career specialty they have chosen, consistent with USAF needs.
