AFROTC Courses

ROTC students must enroll in all Aerospace Studies curriculum to meet program requirements. If necessary, students can arrange to take both freshman and sophomore courses during their sophomore year.

All AFROTC cadets take one Aerospace Studies (AS) course and the Leadership Laboratory. Aerospace Studies are credited courses taught by active-duty officers while Leadership Lab is a cadet-centered program allowing you to practice the leadership skills and management theory acquired in class.
