Requirements & Standards
DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES?
Air Force ROTC is not for everyone. It takes a dedicated student with good grades and a strong will. You must not only survive in this capacity—you must thrive in it. It might be tough, but it’s worth every second. Use this section to explore the various requirements and standards that will help you succeed in Air Force ROTC.
Air Force ROTC is just like any other college course—it has its own specific admissions requirements you must meet to be considered.
Those who have what it takes to thrive academically are rewarded with a free education and a career as a leader in the Air Force.
The Physical Fitness test (pFT) is taken every fall and spring term while a cadet is enrolled in Air Force ROTC.
These requirements are necessary to maintain the proper degree of professionalism, not to mention a sharp, fit appearance in uniform.
All scholarship recipients and members of the Air Force ROTC Professional Officer course (pOC) must pass a Department of Defense Medical Examination Review Board (dODMERB) medical exam.
