ROTC Programs

Air Force ROTC

Detachment 750 at Saint Joseph's University, the Air Force Reserve Officers Training Corps (AFROTC), is Philadelphia's AFROTC hub for 23 total universities in the Philadelphia area and South Jersey. Students in any academic field may participate in AFROTC, simultaneously earning an academic degree and qualifying for a commission as an Air Force officer upon graduation. The program prepares young men and women to serve as military officers in the United States Air Force. Members range from scholarship awardees, to students planning an Air Force career, to students just wanting to learn a little about the Air Force without incurring any obligation. Active-duty Air Force officers provide education and instruction through a variety of activities and a multi-disciplinary curriculum designed to help students develop skills they will need as officers. For more information on AFROTC at Det 750, please visit the official website.

Army ROTC

All students at USciences are eligible to participate in the Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) program through a cooperative arrangement with Drexel University. The program is normally completed in eight semesters (eight courses) or, with some adjustments, in a shorter time period to qualify for a commission by graduation. Program acceptance and ROTC scholarship eligibility may vary, depending on a student’s academic performance, degree choice, and the personnel needs of the military branch.
