Default Stipend

I have received a 4 year Type 7 AFROTC scholarship. I will be attending the University of Colorado, Boulder (IS). I have read on here that my stipend starts once I contract, however a member of the det told me that I will begin receiving it once school starts my freshman year, even if I have not contracted.
Which is correct?

No stipend until you contract.

Someone else will have a more definite answer but I believe you have been told correctly. I believe AFROTC pays the stipend even before you contract. You may be referring to comments about AROTC, they don't pay the stipend until your contracted.

You're kidding me. AFROTC pays before you contract? Wow! Well, I guess it makes sense. The poor little kids will need money when they head to the golf course.

I could also be totally wrong, which means I probably should not answer questions without really knowing. I guess that's what happens when you find yourself sitting on the couch with a Spring Cold.

AFROTC stipends do not occur until contracted.

Exception: field training pay

I think I know where I got confused.

AFROTC cadets don't need to pass their PT Test before they contract, that's where I got confused.
