Preparing for Activation

After completing the virtual information session and I still want to be a part of AFROTC what should I do to prepare for activation?

  • Complete all of directions detailed in Step 1 and Step 2 by Activation Day. Pay attention to detail to the directions given–-A major part of military service will be your ability to pay attention to detail and communicate.
  • Come as physically fit as possible. If you get yourself accustomed to running, calisthenics, and strength training you are giving yourself a better chance of succeeding from Day 1.
  • Locate and bring original copies of the following documents for Activation Day:
    • Birth Certificate (Original–No copies)
    • Social Security Card (Original–No copies)
    • Government ID (Driver’s License, Military ID, Passport, etc.)
    • All civil and law enforcement involved paperwork to complete your WINGs application.

Activation Day will be held on 14-15 August and AFROTC New Student Orientation will be held on 15 August. We will coordinate activation times with all applicants during the Summer. We recommend that anyone moving into the dorms request to move in prior to these days.
