    My son was offered a 4 year AROTC scholarship. He really loves his out of state choice. Is he allowed, though, to change his ROTC schools after his fresman year (if he doesn't like living so far away from home) and take his AROTC scholarship with him? Thank you so much for any word on this matter. We have been unable to find any info on this subject.

    I would ask a school close to home for that answer. Do Not ask your #1 school that is Out of State.

    If he likes the OOS school and enjoys his detachment, he will probably be fine out of state. My older son LOVES where he is (very far away!) and it really makes the kids become more self sufficient since they can't come home every weekend. They bond with their new friends and you can always go visit!!:smile:

    Found this just now on the AFROTC website:
    "Transfers
    Students are expected to graduate from the college or university where they begin their freshman year. A transfer to another university or college is subject to approval by the losing unit commandercommanderThe officer in charge of running an Air Force unit's day-to-day operations. . If a transfer is approved, the scholarship will be capped at the tuition rate of the lower cost school regardless of the scholarship type (for example, if you started at a school with tuition of $5000 per year and then transfer to one with tuition at $12,000 per year, the scholarship is capped at $5000 per year)."

    Thank you so much for the information. I agree with you...he seems very happy with his out of state choice (we met with the PMS and some of the other cadets). I think he worries more about the parental units than he should. He thinks we will be miserable without him. He doesn't know about the hot tub going in his room after he leaves! JK--:biggrin:
