If I am a cross-town cadet, will transportation to Boulder be provided?

No, transportation is not provided.  Most cadets car-pool with other cadets.

Will I have to cut my hair?

Hair must be kept in accordance with Air Force guidelines when in uniform.

Do cadets wear a uniform to class every day?

No. Cadets are only required to wear their uniform to their Air Force ROTC classes and on Leadership Lab day once a week. Occasionally, during special events, they may be required to wear their uniform.

What are the weekly Air Force ROTC time commitments?

The only required time is during your Air Force ROTC classes, Leadership Lab and physical fitness training. (This equates to approximately 5 hours per week for freshmen and sophomores; six hours per week for juniors and seniors.)

How are new cadets treated?

Very well.  Many detachments assign cadet sponsors to new students. They can help students find classes, get textbooks, learn to wear the uniform correctly, meet other cadets and learn basic customs and courtesies. It is also the responsibility of the cadet's flight commander to help new cadets fit into the program. Many detachments also have tutoring programs and other forms of assistance. Hazing is not permitted! You will find the cadet staff and detachment staff are concerned about the cadet's well-being and progress.

Do I need to provide my own uniform?

 No.  Required uniforms and uniform items are provided to cadets at no cost.  Uniforms will be issued after the first semester.

Do I need to procure anything before starting the program?

No, everything you need will be provided when you need it.

Can I participate in intercollegiate athletics while enrolled in the Air Force ROTC program?

Yes. Generally, extracurricular campus activities and Air Force ROTC are perfectly compatible – as long as they do not overload with extracurricular activities. A serious physical injury while participating in intercollegiate or intramural athletic activities may cause them to be un-enrolled from Air Force ROTC because of a change in their physical profile.
