Air Force ROTC (AFROTC)
Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) is an educational program designed to give men and women the opportunity to become Air Force officers while completing their degrees. The Air Force ROTC program is designed to prepare you to assume positions of increasing responsibility and importance in the modern Air Force.
The General Military Course is the first half of the four- year program. This course is taken during your freshman and sophomore years at MMI in conjunction with the University of Alabama. This program allows you to “try out” Air Force ROTC for up to two years without incurring any obligation unless you are on an Air Force ROTC scholarship. As you attend class, you’ll learn more about the Air Force and the historical development of air-power. The last two years are called the Professional Officer Course. These junior and senior level classes cover leadership skills and national defense policy, and can be completed at a four-year institution that offers this program.
