It became extremely competitive this year and not all high quality applicants are going to get selected.
You still have a chance to get a scholarship as a freshman or sophomore in college. Scholarship opportunities do not exist for AFROTC upperclassman (juniors/seniors).
St Thomas students can leverage an Air Force scholarship to receive the UST subsidy which allows cadets to attend college for a net cost of zero.
We do not manage housing at all; it is entirely a campus matter. Freshman are initially assigned a dorm room by the university. However, cadets do have the ability to choose dorm rooms from their sophomore year on and usually do end up rooming together.
Air Force ROTC students can participate in both a sport and the AFROTC program. We have had cadets in football, hockey, baseball, cross-country, basketball and are starting to see growing interest in lacrosse. If need be, we can meet with your coach to discuss how you can do both. Usually, we coordinate for the cadet to miss one or both days of PT while they are involved in the sport.
