New Student Orientation

Welcome to AFROTC Detachment 670!

Congratulations on your interest in pursuing a rewarding career in service to your country in the world’s greatest air force and space force! You are about to embark on a journey that will open many doors and develop skills needed to lead airmen and guardians for our nation.

Below are instructions about how to in-process online (required), as well as an invitation to our New Student Orientation Program (NSOP) the week of August 14th, 2024.


***IMPORTANT*** If you received an AFROTC scholarship in high school (HSSP) or were contracted right out of high school, you will receive different instructions via email for an orientation on August 15th.

To Do Immediately

  • First, enroll in AERO 1111; ensure you have access to Canvas.
  • Reference the WINGS In-Processing Guide to complete in-processing PART I (steps 1-14) no later than August 14th.
  • Schedule a sports physical with your doctor. You will need to bring a Form 28—AFROTC Sports Physical to your appointment for your doctor to complete. This is required before you can participate in physical training. 
    • Important: The AFORTC Sports Physical PDF form should be downloaded to your computer and viewed with Adobe Acrobat Reader or another similar full-featured PDF reader to print.

We understand that you will all be busy getting settled into your living areas the week before classes start, therefore, our orientation will be available on two days:


Wednesday, August 16, 2024, and Friday, August 18, 2024 from 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. Come to only ONE of those offerings.


Orientation is a great opportunity for you to meet your classmates, get to know detachment leadership, complete required application paperwork, and ask any further questions about AFROTC. This is a voluntary event; however, your attendance is highly encouraged to make sure you have all of your requirements taken care of before classes begin!


Check-in for Detachment 670 will start at 8:45 a.m. in 320 Thatcher Hall, and continue in the Classroom Building. If there is a change to this information, it will be announced on the AERO 1111 Canvas page no later than August 14th. More detailed information for the day will also be available in Canvas. Please review the list below of required documents that you need to bring with you. All documents (birth certificate, SSN card, etc.) must be the originals; we’ll make copies and the originals will be returned to you!
