Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC)

Air Force ROTC

Quinnipiac students meeting Air Force requirements may participate in Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) cross-town at Yale University.

The AFROTC program is available to Quinnipiac University students at Yale University’s main campus in New Haven. Through the AFROTC program, Quinnipiac University 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 also are 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 they join at the start of sophomore year) AFROTC sequence. Students commute to New Haven on the days listed below for AFROTC-specific classes and events. Up to 17 credits may be transferred to Quinnipiac and counted toward degree requirements as free electives.

Qualified students should contact the AFROTC office at 203-432-9431 or visit their website.
