Program Requirements

Physical Training (PT)

Our PT program incorporates calisthenics, cardio and strength training to ensure our cadets are Fit to Fight and aims to establish a lifelong commitment to fitness. We hold three PT sessions each week on M/W/F from 0600-0700. Cadets are required to attend at least two of these sessions each week. We hold a Fitness Assesment (FA) at least once a semester. Scoring criteria can be found here.

Academic Classes (AERO XXXX)

Our Aerospace Studies classes are university classes aimed to teach you all about our Air Force and being an officer. First and second year cadets take one credit-hour classes that meet for 75 minutes once per week. Third and fourth year cadets take three credit-hour classes that meet for 75 minutes twice per week. All cadets must obtain a "C" or better in each Aerospace Studies class. Visit the university's Undergraduate Catolog to read more about each of our classes. 

Leadership Laboratory (AERO 1100)

Our laboratory is cadet led and focuses on training in drill and ceremony, building warrior ethos and equipping our cadets with leadership and followership skills. Leadership Laboratory, or "Lead Lab" as we call it, is where we build officers.
