Air Force Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (AFROTC)

The Air Force ROTC education program provides preprofessional preparation for future Air Force officers. It is designed to develop men and women who can apply their education to their initial active duty assignments as Air Force commissioned officers. The two major AFROTC curriculum offerings spanning the student’s college career are: General Military Course (GMC), freshman and sophomore years, and Professional Officer Course (POC), junior and senior years. Graduate students are eligible for the two-year program. As an AFROTC cadet, students are eligible to compete for AFROTC scholarships in selected academic areas. All scholarship students, as well as cadets in the last two years of the program, receive a tax-free stipend of $200 a month. Upon graduation, students are commissioned second lieutenants in the United States Air Force. AFROTC field training is offered during summer months at select Air Force bases throughout the United States. Students in the four-year program participate in four weeks of field training, usually between sophomore and junior years. Students applying for entry into the two-year program must successfully complete five weeks of field training prior to enrollment in the Professional Officer Course. Major areas of study in the Field Training Program include junior officer training, aircraft and aircrew orientation, career orientation, survival training, base functions and Air Force environment, and physical training. Leadership laboratory is taken an average of two hours per week throughout the student’s period of enrollment in AFROTC. The first two years of the leadership laboratory include a study of Air Force customs and courtesies, drill and ceremonies, issuing military commands, instructing, directing, and evaluating the preceding skills, studying the environment of an Air Force officer, and learning about areas of opportunity available to commissioned officers. The last two years consist of activities classified as advanced leadership experiences. They involve the planning and controlling of military activities of the cadet corps; the preparation and presentation of briefings and other oral and written communications; and the providing of interviews, guidance, and information that will increase the understanding, motivation, and performance of other cadets. For more information call the main office at 718.862.7201. Students may register for AFROTC at the same time and in the same manner as for other college courses at NYIT.

It consists of training in leadership, management, military skills, and physical fitness. Students learn to apply these skills inside and outside the classroom. In addition, a variety of outside social and professional enrichment activities are available. ROTC textbooks, uniforms, and other essential materials for the basic course are furnished to the students. Sophomores who did not take ROTC 103 and 104 may compress ROTC 103 and 104 and ROTC 203 and 204 to complete the basic course. There is no military obligation for enrolling in the basic ROTC course. After they have completed the basic course, students who have demonstrated the potential to become officers’ and who have met physical and scholastic standards are eligible to enroll in the advanced course. The advanced course is usually taken during the final two years of college. It includes instruction in management, tactics, ethics, and further leadership development. Textbooks and uniforms in the advanced course are also furnished to students. During the summer between their junior and senior years of college, advanced course cadets attend a paid six-week training session called advanced camp. Advanced camp gives cadets the chance to practice what they have learned in the classroom, and introduces them to Army life “in the field.” The two-year program is designed for students who did not take ROTC during their first two years of school or students entering a two-year post-graduate course of study. To enter the two-year program, students must first attend a paid five-week basic camp, normally held during the summer between sophomore and junior years of college. After they have successfully completed basic camp, students who meet all the necessary enrollment requirements are enrolled in the advanced course. To receive full semester credit for the advanced course and advanced camp (12 semester hours), a student must be commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Army upon course completion. Partial credit may be awarded at the chairperson’s discretion if the student fails to complete the advance course. NOTE: all basic military science courses include the appropriate number of class hours, plus a required leadership laboratory and additional classes in physical training each week. A field trip of approximately three days provides practical experience in small organization leadership. All students are expected to attend the leadership laboratory, physical training, and the field trip. 316
