If you are already in college, you may still take part in Air Force ROTC. ASU students are placed in the program based on how much time they have left before graduation. Transfer students are placed based on how many credit hours ASU honors and how much time they have left before graduation.

To be eligible for commissioning into the Air Force and Space Force, students must be in ROTC for a minimum of two-and-a-half to three years, depending on experience and credit hours.
