tuition, books, and fees. Successful completion of as

little as four semesters of AFROTC academic classes

and leadership laboratories can lead to a commission

as a second lieutenant in the United States Air Force.

Classes consist of one hour of academics and two

hours of laboratory for freshman and sophomores;

three hours of academics and two hours of

laboratory for juniors and seniors. AFROTC cadets

under scholarship and all juniors and seniors receive

a monthly tax-free stipend and a textbook allowance.

No military commitment is incurred until entering the

last two years of the program (Professional Officer

Army ROTC (AROTC)

AROTC is a program that enables students to

become officers in the U.S. Army, Army Reserves, or

Army National Guard while earning a college degree.

The curriculum supplements students’ academic

majors by offering elective courses ranging from

leadership and management to military law. Courses

are augmented with leadership laboratories that

stress practical skills such as first aid, land navigation,

survival techniques,

rappelling, military tactics, and

scenario-driven leadership reaction courses.

Scholarships are available for two, three, and four years

of academic study and are awarded on a competitive

basis.

Students may select a branch of the Army in which to

be commissioned from 16 specialty fields, including

military intelligence, aviation, signal communications,

finance, logistics, nursing, and engineering. Prior to

completion of the ROTC program, students may

request to go on active duty or serve part-time in

the Army Reserves or National Guard. For more

information, contact AROTC at one of the following

universities: CSUN at (818) 677-7855 or UCLA at
