    Hello all,

    I am a freshman at a very good AFROTC Detachment with a Type 7 scholarship. However, AFROTC is a lot of work (but worth it) and my first year of engineering is intense and will only get far more difficult.

    Anyhow, I've been reading about the Navy Civil Engineering Collegiate program...being a Civil Engineer in the military is my goal, branch does not matter. I just really like how the CECP program lets you focus on your education and not have to worry about ROTC related duties. It also pays significantly more for school than Type 7.

    Anyone have any experience with this program and has anyone left ROTC to do this?

    Thanks!

    I might be wrong, but I believe that program is only offered to juniors and seniors in college. If so, than as a scholarship recipient you have @7 months to decide to walk away from AFROTC

    I would contact a Navy recruiter for details AND the NROTC COC for further guidance.

    Yep, it certainly is that way...however I am wondering if I should stay in AFROTC for this year or not.

    Well I really do love it, and I'm managing academics well so that is a yes. However I don't want to feel like a scumbag if I end up leaving and doing the Navy program. However I know you can leave the first year. I am going to stay in AFROTC because right now that is what I have and I will still be very happy even if the Navy program doesn't work out.
