Air Force ROTC

Students at Western Connecticut State University (WCSU) are able to take Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) classes at Yale University’s main campus in New Haven, CT and earn a commission as second lieutenant.

Through the AFROTC program, WCSU students, without paying extra tuition, can pursue a commission as an officer in the United States Air Force.  The freshman and sophomore courses carry no military obligation and are open to all students.  Scholarships are also available for qualified students.  These scholarships pay up to full tuition and fees, as well as money for books and a monthly tax-free stipend.  For more information on AFROTC scholarships, please visit

Students enroll in a four-year or three-year (if joining in their sophomore year) AFROTC sequence.  Students commute to New Haven for AFROTC-specific classes and events.
