The Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) develops leaders of character for the United States Air Force and Space Force. The AFROTC program is available for University of Mount Olive students through a cross-town agreement with East Carolina University, Detachment 600, and the United States Air Force.
Students participating should expect a commitment of five to seven hours per week during the first two years of the program. Hours may include participating in physical training, one hour of lecture and two hours of leadership labs at ECU on Wednesdays of each week. If you are a student-athlete in the program, the physical fitness training is included in your athletic participation. On the Wednesday(s) you are at ECU, you should expect to be away from the UMO campus for most of the day based on your schedule at ECU.
For years three and four, should you choose to continue, you will be competing for a slot to attend field training and the Professional Officer Course. You should expect to commit up to 10 hours per week including physical training, class and leadership lab time. Again, the classes will be on Wednesdays and you should expect to be away from the UMO campus for most of the day.
