Welcome Prospective Students

Thank you for your interest in Air Force ROTC Detachment 785 at The University of Memphis. Our comprehensive program offers not only education in the field of Aerospace Studies, but also the opportunity to develop leadership and teamwork skills that will serve you well for the rest of your life.

Qualifying freshmen and sophomores may join our General Military Course (GMC) with no commitment to the Air Force. Upon completion of all GMC requirements, cadets are eligible for Air Force ROTC Field Training. If selected, students typically attend Field Training the summer after completing the GMC course. Students completing Field Training are then admitted to the two year Professional Officer's Course (POC) and contracted with the Air Force to begin preparation for active duty. While part of the POC, students receive a monthly stipend. Upon completion of the POC and a bachelor's degree, students are commissioned into the Air Force as Second Lieutenants.
