Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments and Programs

Western Michigan University, Michigan State University and the United States Air Force have an agreement that enables WMU students to attend AFROTC classes at MSU while earning their degree at WMU.

The AFROTC program provides pre-professional preparation for future USAF officers. The program is designed to develop men and women who can apply their education to their initial assignments as commissioned officers. In order to receive a commission, ROTC cadets must complete all requirements for a degree in accordance with University requirements, as well as complete certain courses specified by the MSU Department of Aerospace Studies. Depending on the student’s program of study, such courses may supplement or serve as electives with the approval of the appropriate academic unit. For an undetermined amount of time, all AFROTC classes will only be offered on the campus of Michigan State University, and students may register through Michigan State University’s Lifelong Education program, or alternatively students may register through WMU’s normal registration process.

For more information about the AFROTC program and or scholarship opportunities, call (517) 355-2168 or visit or
