Hello all, I am a bit confused about the difference between contracted and non-contracted cadets because I have received multiple different answers. So if anyone knows the answers to my questions I would appreciate it. The first is: -How likely is it once commissioned that the Air Force will pay for your masters . degree? The second I have received numerous different answers. I had a question about drug test because I STILL have not had one. PLEASE NOTE: I do not smoke weed anymore and have not for over two years, so I am not asking this because I want to get high and get away with smoking, otherwise I would not be in the military as the two do not go together. That being said. -Does AFROTC have the right to randomly drug test NON CONTRACTED Cadets? So Cadets that are Freshman or Sophomores who have no military obligation yet? Or do they just randomly drug test contracted cadets? SO FAR I HAVE HEARD THIS FROM OTHER PEOPLE: -All groups, whether by contract or not, have rules that members agree to when joining up. You may not have remembered the rules or they were in a brochure or handout that you didn't bother to read regarding drug testing. Look back through your paperwork or ask the person in charge for that documentation. -And you will not get tested until you are contracted. Until then Uncle Sam has no control over you. You will not get drug tested when you are not contracted. Period. - If you are not contracted you are just some civilian college kid taking ROTC classes. As a matter of routine we do not drug test Cadets until they go off on some sort of summer training. Once you are contracted you become a cadet. -Anyone on the program can be drug tested. At any time. It will be part of the mandatory physical. Just like anyone in DEP can be drug tested at anytime. SO who is right? Have I not been drug tested because I am Non contracted and Non scholarship? Or can they test me anyway but have chosen not to? Thanks for any help and answers.
