    Could normal civil college student apply for USAFA or only civil college ROTC student can apply?

    Any student can apply.

    In my doolie squadron was a guy that went to college for 3 years before he entered USAFA.

    Thanks!

    So that means my DS can search for both civil scholarship and ROTC scholarship for plan B if he fails in 2014 and continue to apply in 2015?

    But why everybody said in the previous posts that plan B is ROTC scholarship?

    Many kids who want to serve apply to SAs and ROTC out of High School with SAs as Plan A, and ROTC as Plan B. That way if they do not receive an appointment to a SA, they can go the ROTC route in college. Once in ROTC, they can continue, graduate and commission, or they can reapply to a SA after a year in college. Hope this helps.

    The plan A versus plan B is really up to the student and what they want their experience to be. Our first was 100% usafa and didn't even apply for the rotc scholarship. Our second applied for both and was lucky enough to get an appointment and a type1 afrotc. She ultimately chose the type1 afrotc route - so that would be her plan A. Different routes to the same goal.

    I also would recommend having a civilian school back-up where you could go without being required, by finances, or anything else, to do ROTC, just in case something medical turns up. This could be a separate school, or the same one, however it works out.
