How to Apply

To become a member of Air Force ROTC at Mississippi State, you must attend AFROTC Inprocessing. 

Inprocessing for AFROTC is held during the week between dorm move in and the first day of classes.  You must sign up for the appropriate AS class, generally AS1011 for freshmen (AS1021 for Spring).  You must bring all of the items listed below as well as print the application package and guide.  

You will also have the opportunity to attend an introduction to cadet life day.  This is held during the same time frame as inprocessing and is hosted by current cadets and Bully Force. While not mandatory, this is highly encouraged and will make your first few weeks in the AFROTC Det 425 Cadet Wing much easier.
