Welcome Future Cadets to Air Force ROTC Detachment 630
Congratulations on your decision to join the AFROTC program at Detachment (Det) 630, hosted at Kent State University (KSU). We look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your goal of becoming a commissioned officer in the world's greatest Air Force!
Class Registration at your university
The registration process varies slightly for each college/university. Please read carefully to ensure you have all the data that applies to your home institution.
University of Akron, Cleveland State University, Kent State University, University of Mount Union, and Youngstown State University: Your academic advisor will help you register for both the freshman level Air Force ROTC Aerospace Studies class and leadership lab. The two freshman level classes include the lecture Heritage and Values and 100 level Leadership Laboratory. Both the lecture and lab need to be taken during the semester if the student is seeking a commission in the Air Force. Fill out the KSU Cross Registration Form found above (KSU students are excluded from this requirement). If your college advisor needs more information about AFROTC for Northeast Ohio schools, he or she should contact the Det 630 front office at 330.672.8215. Use the Schedule of Classes to find the CRN, course, and section numbers that you will need to register.
Baldwin Wallace University, Case Western Reserve University, and Hiram College: To attend AFROTC classes at Det 630, you must cross register for the Aerospace Studies (ASTU) and Leadership Laboratory classes before the start of the semester through Cleveland State University. Both the lecture and lab are a requirement to be eligible for scholarships and eventually a commission in the USAF. Please follow the following steps:
- Fill out the KSU Cross Registration Form found above.
- Fill out a Northeast Ohio Council on Higher Education cross registration form for both ROTC courses. Only Baldwin Wallace students must also complete the transient student permit.
- Have the form(s) signed by your home schools’ registrar stating you are in good academic standing with your university.
- Once signed by your registrar take the form IN-PERSON to Cleveland State University, Campus 411 All-in-1, Main Classroom (MC) 116, 2121 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, OH. Explain to them that you are trying to cross register. You will be asked to sign a registration payment waiver to complete the process.
- If there are any complications make sure to contact staff at Detachment 630 for assistance.
Ursuline College and Walsh University: Only required to fill out the KSU Cross Registration Form (found above).
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.
Once your forms are filled out and you verified that you have completed, please upload them to the Det 630 Dropbox.

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.
