New Cadet Enrollment information

One of the first things that you will need to do as a Cadet is to create you WINGS account.  WINGS is on online system that will be used to track your entire AFROTC career.  It will help maintain that your records are current and ensure that there is a smooth transition to active duty after you commission.  This is how we will access and upload all of the documentation you provide us.  Please make sure to use your .edu email to create your account. 

Use this AFROTC Guide to Applicant Admissions Process to create your WINGS account and apply for AFROTC. 

The next thing needed to process your enrollment into AFROTC is completion of your in-processing packet.  Make sure that you complete all items on the Det 630 New Cadet Checklist.  We will need your original Birth Certificate and Social Security Card when you come in for a physical visit, but we will give them back to you on the spot once we make copies.

CROSSTOWN and KSU-Satellite CADET PARKING AT KSU's main campus

Prior to attending classes at KSU, cadets from the Youngstown State University, the University of Akron, and Cleveland State University should ask your home school parking department for a YACK sticker to be placed on your parking pass, which will allow parking in commuter lots at KSU.

All other crosstown cadets who pay for parking at their home school or campus may be eligible for free commuter parking at Kent State. Simply take your parking receipt to the parking services department in the Schwartz Center and explain what host university or campus you attend, that you are an AFROTC cadet, and how many days of the week you intend to be on KSU's campus to receive your pass.

Crosstown cadets who do not pay for parking at their home school will be charged to park at KSU. To obtain your parking pass, visit the KSU Parking Services Department in the Schwartz Center prior to attending classes. Explain what day of the week and time of day you need to keep costs low and receive the pass that best fits your needs.
