    Hello, I will be attending college this fall with a strong desire for AFROTC. Although I have applied for a scholarship, I was not offered one. My question is, I will be majoring in Mechanical Engineering and to my info, most don't complete it in 4 years, more like 4.5 or 5 years. So as related to AFROTC and attaining a UPT slot, how will I have to go about this issue, considering I'm not completely sure if I'll be one of the few to complete it in 4 years, and when I should apply for the slot, at what year. Any insight would be great. Thanks in advance

    AFROTC expects you to complete your degree in 4 years. It is not impossible and many students/cadets accomplish it every year. Cadets sometimes have to take / re-take classes during the Summer and/or forgo internships or a semester overseas to finish in time. After you join your AFROTC Detachment you will meet with one of the cadre each semester to review your progress and to ensure you are on track to meet that goal. You can be dis-enrolled for failure to make acceptable academic progress. Just work hard and stay focused on what you need to accomplish and you'll be fine. Good Luck!:thumb:

    Check out the Virginia Tech AFROTC website. It has some of the best information out there. Here is what it says on their website:

    Thanks for the clarification Packer! I must have been mis-informed.
