ROTC Programs

Miami hosts Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) opportunities for students interested in the Air Force and Navy. Xavier University Army ROTC in Cincinnati serves as the host program for Miami ROTC Army cadets. In exchange for a paid college education and a guaranteed post-college career, cadets commit to serve in the U.S. Military after graduation.

Air Force ROTC

Air Force ROTC offers a scholarship program for highly qualified high school seniors as well as students already in college who are interested in commissioning as Air Force officers. Students who complete the AFROTC program commission as second lieutenants in the U.S. Air Force with a challenging career specialty like pilot, navigator, air battle manager, intelligence, maintenance, security forces, space and missiles, finance, doctor, nurse, manpower and personnel, or public affairs.
