Advising and Curriculum

It takes a village to get a student through college.

We understand and appreciate the time and effort it takes to ensure students are informed. To help out with the flow of information, please use the following tools to help cadets with tools they need to be successful in the AFROTC program.

 All first series courses are only offered in fall semesters.  Likewise all second series courses are only offered in spring semesters.  Make sure to choose the correct level Leadership Laboratory when registering for class.

The AFROTC Academic Courses The AFROTC courses are sequenced by subject area for specific and logical reasons.

AS 100, "Heritage and Values of the United States Air Force," is a survey course designed to introduce students to the United States Air Force and provides an overview of the basic characteristics, missions, and organization of the Air Force.

AS 200, "Team and Leadership Fundamentals," features topics on Air Force heritage and leaders; introduction to air power through examination of the Air Force Core Functions; and continued application of communication skills. Its purpose is to instill an appreciation of the development and employment of air power and to motivate sophomore students to transition from AFROTC cadet to AFROTC officer candidate.

AS 300, "Leading People and Effective Communication," teaches cadets advanced skills and knowledge in management and leadership. Special emphasis is placed on enhancing leadership skills. Cadets have an opportunity to try out these leadership and management techniques in a supervised environment as juniors and seniors.

AS 400, "National Security Affairs/Preparation for Active Duty," is designed for college seniors and gives them the foundation to understand their role as military officers in American society. It is an overview of the complex social and political issues facing the military profession and requires a measure of sophistication commensurate with the senior college level. Communication Studies are woven throughout the AFROTC program.

The "Communication Studies Plan" outlines requirements and provides suggested activities.
