Philadelphia's Air Force ROTC

How Do I Join?

There are two ways a student can join AFROTC at Det 750.  First, if you are a current high school student, you can apply for an AFROTC scholarship via afrotc.com/scholarships.  The application will be completed online, except for an in-person interview with an officer from the detachment that is geographically closest to your home.  Applicants must have a minimum of an 1180 SAT or 26 ACT score and a cumulative 3.0 high school GPA (freshmen through junior years) to be eligible.  The scholarship application process is open from May 1 – December 1 during the student’s senior year of high school.

The second path to join ROTC is for those who are not applying for a scholarship.  No formal application exists for students who are not applying for a scholarship.  In order to join, all you have to do is contact the Recruiting Flight Commander (rotc@sju.edu or 610-660-3190) to get signed up.
