To join the greatest air force in the world you must uphold these three core values.
Service before self

To become an Air Force officer, you must graduate with a degree. The detachment recognizes that this is one of your top goals. Cadets must strive to excel in their studies and balance it with their responsibilities in ROTC.
Be a full time student.
Have a 2.0 cumulative GPA(grade point average) or higher.
Have a 2.5 cumulative GPA or higher before becoming a POC

As a college student, GPAs and grades can be difficult to maintain.
Due to the increasing importance of academic performance, the cadet wing can help students in their studies. The cadet wing provides tools to network between peers so that you can succeed in college.
The Air Force wants a culture of fitness and requires cadets to keep their bodies in shape. Twice a year cadets take a PFA (Physical Fitness Assessment).The PFA consists of 1 minute sit-ups, 1 minute push-ups and a 1.5 mile run. The test is administered in one session and there will be a short break between each activity. There are different standards for each gender and age group. Your score is composed of your performance in those three activities and your waist measurement.
To prepare you for the PFA and military duty you must attend 2 PT (Physical Training) sessions each week. One of those sessions must be Wing Mandatory PT. Other PT sessions are offered throughout the week.
