AIR FORCE ROTC (AFROTC)
Students at Western Connecticut State University are able to take AFROTC classes at Yale University and receive commissions as second lieutenants.
The AFROTC program is available to Western Connecticut State University students at Yale University’s main campus in New Haven. Through the AFROTC program, Western Connecticut State University students, without paying extra tuition, can pursue a commission as an officer in the United States Air Force. The freshmen 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.
Students enroll in a four-year or three-year (if joining in their sophomore year) AFROTC sequence. Students commute to New Haven on the days listed below for AFROTC-specific classes and events.
Qualified students should contact the AFROTC office at (203) 432-9431 or visit our website at yalecollege.yale.edu/content/air-force-rotc-yale.
