AFROTC Courses = Academic Credit

AFROTC courses are considered electives for which you’ll receive academic credit.

Enroll in AFROTC When Enrolling in College

To become a Commissioned Officer in the U.S. Air Force, students must complete the three- or four-year AFROTC program. Therefore, it’s a good idea to enroll in AFROTC at the same time you enroll in your first college courses.

As you progress, you’ll move from the General Military Course (GMC) in your freshman and sophmore years to the Professional Officer Course (POC) in your junior and senior years.
