Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps
Students at Quinnipiac University are able to take AFROTC classes at Yale University and receive commissions as second lieutenants. The AFROTC program is available to Quinnipiac students at Yale University's main campus in New Haven. Through the AFROTC program, Quinnipiac 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 the Yale Web site.
