News and Updates: 

 
 
 
 
AFROTC will accept applications from those students who have not been able to test due to COVID-19 constraints which have impacted testing availability.  We have always considered applicants based on a “whole person” concept; therefore, individuals without test scores will not be disadvantaged as test scores are but one of the many factors we consider in our selection process.  This only applies to the current scholarship application window which closes on January 14, 2021. 
 
IMPORTANT: This is not a blanket waiver of the ACT/SAT, it applies only to those who have been unable to test. If an applicant has previously submitted scores that do not meet our minimum eligibility criteria (1240 SAT / 26 SAT) they remain ineligible at this time.   
 
 
Students can apply for the AFROTC HSSP at: https://www.afrotc.com/apply
Deadline for applying for the AFROTC HSSP is 14 January 2021 (only 30 days away!)
If you are unable to apply for the HSSP or do not receive the HSSP, you can still enroll in AFROTC and apply for the In-College Scholarship Program (ICSP) while in college.
