Hi- What is the process for joining ROTC at a university? I did not apply for the scholarship this fall because honestly the deadline snuck up on me at the time and I wasn't really considering ROTC. I have an appointment for USAFA Class of 2018 and that is where I am strongly considering attending. However, I am accepted at the University of Notre Dame and was wondering if I would be able to do either AFROTC or NROTC my first year without a scholarship, but then get the scholarship for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th year. Thanks.
