The Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) program at Boston University offers students an opportunity to earn a commission in the U.S. Air Force while completing graduate or undergraduate degree requirements. The Aerospace Studies curriculum develops leadership skills while familiarizing the student with U.S. Air Force functions, organization, equipment, management, and its role in national defense. The student is commissioned upon successful completion of both the Aerospace Studies curriculum and the Boston University degree requirements. Students typically enter the program during their freshman or sophomore years, but may enter as late as junior year, with some restrictions.
Participation in AFROTC during the first two years of the four-year program carries no commitment to serve in the U.S. Air Force, unless the student has an AFROTC scholarship.
