Air Force ROTC
Monmouth University and Rutgers University have an agreement permitting students at Monmouth University to cross-enroll in the Air Force Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) program at Rutgers University. The Air Force ROTC program provides students the opportunity to study and train for careers in the U.S. Air Force. Students who successfully complete the program are tendered commissions as second lieutenants.
To qualify for enrollment, a student must be physically qualified, be enrolled as a full-time student, and be of good moral character. Enrollment in the Air Force ROTC involves no military commitment during the freshman and sophomore years. The advanced portion of the program is contractual and is scheduled during the junior and senior years. Obligations include enrollment in the Reserves, successful completion of field training between sophomore and junior year, and acceptance of a reserve commission, if tendered.
Monmouth students must complete a “Permission to Take Courses” e-FORM prior to taking classes at Rutgers in order to have the ROTC credits apply toward degree requirements.
Students cross-enrolling for the ROTC courses are charged separately by Rutgers for these courses. Uniforms and textbooks are supplied to all students enrolled in both the basic and advanced programs. A deposit fee is required for textbooks and uniforms. This fee is refunded when textbooks and uniforms are returned. Students enrolled in the advanced program receive a subsistence allowance from the Air Force while enrolled.
Air Force ROTC scholarships of various lengths are available. These scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic performance, scores on the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test, results of a medical examination, and a personal interview.
