To become a member of Air Force ROTC at Mississippi State, you must attend AFROTC Orientation.
Orientation for AFROTC is held during every MSU freshman orientation and the week of MSU class start date. You must sign up for the AS class, generally AS1011 for freshmen (AS1021 for Spring). You must bring all of the items listed below as well as print and fill out the application package and orientation guide.
You will also have the opportunity to attend an introduction to cadet life day. This is held before class begins and after move-in day. While not mandatory, this is highly encouraged and will make your first few weeks in the AFROTC Det 425 Cadet Wing much easier.
