AIR FORCE ACADEMY

The Academy is located 50 miles south of Denver, Colorado. The Academy is built on a mesa of 7,000 feet altitude in a setting of natural beauty. The buildings in the cadet area are designed in contemporary architectural style highlighted by the Cadet Chapel with its 17 aluminum spires towering 150 feet into the air. The campus has a space-age effect, appropriate to the mission of preparing cadets to become officers and leaders in the Air Force of the future.

AIR FORCE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS

THE TECHNICAL TRAINING CENTERS
The Air Force conducts some of the finest career education training in the nation. Some 1,200 courses are taught at seven major Air Force technical training centers located in the South and Midwest. Each year, more than 60,000 young men and women graduate from these centers.

THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE OF THE AIR FORCE (CCAF)
Opened officially in April 1972, Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) is one of the most popular programs in the Air Force. The College awards semester-hours for course completions at the technical training schools in addition to four semester-hour credits for completion of basic training. The College also offers each airman the opportunity to earn an Associate in Applied Science Degree. To complete the degree, you must register for off-duty college or university courses and complete a minimum of 64 semester-hours of combined Air Force and civilian courses. The Air Force will pay up to three-quarters of tuition for off-duty education whenever you register for off-duty education on base or at an accredited college or university.

A worldwide transcript service is another feature of the College. Regardless of your duty assignment, you can have your course completions (civilian as well as Air Force) entered on your CCAF transcript if you register in a degree program. The transcript is provided free of charge.

AIR FORCE ROTC COLLEGE PROGRAMS

CHOOSE FROM THREE PROGRAMS
Air Force ROTC offers a Four-Year Program, a Two-Year Program and a One-Year Program. Most cadets go through the Four-Year Program, which is tailored for students with three or more years of college left. If you have two years of college remaining, you may apply for the Two-Year Program. The One-Year Program is for students preparing for occupations for which the Air Force has a special need, such as nursing.

HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS AND GRADUATES
Competitive scholarships are available to high school seniors and graduates not enrolled full-time in college who want to work toward certain degrees. Engineering, architecture, mathematics, computer science, meteorology, and physics are just a few of the degrees needed in the Air Force.

Limited scholarships are available to those who enroll in certain non-technical degree programs. Examples are business administration, accounting, economics, and management.
Get your application package from a high school official, admissions liaison officer, Air Force recruiter, Air Force ROTC admissions counselor or professor of aerospace studies at a college or university offering Air Force ROTC, or from HQ AFROTC?Recruiting Division, Maxwell AFB AL 36112-6106.

Your application package must be completed before December 1 of your high school senior year. It’s to your advantage to apply early.

Selection boards convene periodically between November and February. Your application for a scholarship will be evaluated in the following areas:
  • Scores on the SAT or ACT. (Plan to test in your junior year, or early in your senior year.)
  • Recommendations from high school officials.
  • Record of extracurricular activities.
  • Personal interview by an Air Force representative.
