Frequently Asked Questions

If I Join Air Force ROTC, Does That Mean I Am Joining The Military?

No. If you got a four-year scholarship from high school, then the first year of college is paid for, and you can quit at the end of your freshman year with no obligation. If you got a three-year scholarship from high school or college then you are not committed to the Air Force until you accept your scholarship (usually in the fall of your sophomore year). If you did not get any scholarship, then you are not committed to joining the Air Force until you start your junior year of college.

Do I Have To Join Air Force ROTC As A Freshman?

No. Any undergraduate student with three or more years remaining should be eligible. So if you are a second-semester freshman, a sophomore or otherwise and have at least three years remaining in your undergraduate studies, you are likely able to join the ROTC program.



New Student Orientation

The New Student Orientation Program offers a three-day introductory experience for UNH freshmen interested in the program. Some of the benefits include early move-in to campus, a jump start on Air Force education, and a chance to meet and interact with our excellent cadet wing as they organize and lead the program.
