The Air Force ROTC program is offered through the Aerospace Studies department at the University of California at Berkeley.  Students may enroll in the program and attend one course per semester at the UC Berkeley campus at no cost.  The Air Force ROTC courses are AEROSPC 1 - Foundations of the U.S. Air Force for first-year students (1 credit), AEROSPC 2 - Evolution of USAF Air and Space Power for second-year students (1 credit), AEROSCP 135 - Leadership Studies for third-year students (3 credits), and MILAFF 145 National Security Forces in Contemporary American Society for fourth-year students (3 credits).  Additionally, all students (regardless of year) take AEROSPC 100 - Leadership Laboratory (0 credits) as the lab component for each of the academic courses.  The Air Force ROTC program also includes a fitness program as well as Field Training, a 4-week summer program usually taken between second and third year.  Upon completion of their college degree program and the ROTC program, students will commission as Second Lieutenants in the United States Air Force.  To be eligible for Air Force ROTC, applicants should be a full-time student and meet additional fitness, GPA, testing, and other requirements. Qualified students may also compete for Air Force ROTC scholarships.
