Application Process

Upon arrival to Det 009, you will be asked to complete a short array of paperwork. This will take approximately 60-90 minutes and should be scheduled via appointment, if possible. During this time, we will ask for your personal information and provide you with a few briefings. We will then use this information to evaluate you for general membership eligibility and establish you as an active cadet. 
To accomplish this task, we will require a few original documents and other information you may not otherwise be able to readily recall; to speed this process along, bring these items with you to your initial visit. So you are aware, we will make copies for our records and return the originals to you immediately.  If you do not have any of these documents available, we will still complete the inprocessing as best we can and we will establish a suspense for you to provide the rest.
All cadets require:

  • Original Certified Birth Certificate (Long Form)
  • Original Signed Social Security Card
  • Completed Sports Physical – The AFROTC Form 28, is our required document. Contact us and we will provide this to you. Please do not use a web search to find this, as you may end up with an out of date form which will be unacceptable.
