Enrollment & Orientation

Spring New Student Orientation Date:  Thursday, 6 January 2022

Time:  7:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Location:  Social Sciences Building, Room 105

Please ensure all of your WINGS information is complete two weeks prior to the orientation date.  If you are unable to attend the orientation on this date, please call ahead to schedule an alternate orientation time/date/place.

Uniform of the Day (UOD) for Orientation

Incoming students attending orientation should wear the UOD: navy blue polo, khaki pants, black belt, black socks, black shoes and black face mask (per ASU guidance). No hats shall be worn. All male students should be clean shaven. Further details about grooming standards will be explained throughout the beginning of the semester to incoming cadets.

We are using a paperless orientation, which allows new students in our program to complete several forms online. You will need to complete the first two steps in the process, completing applicant registration and part one of the applicant checklist, no later than two weeks prior to the set orientation date. Please visit the website below and click on "Apply for AFROTC" to create an account and begin the checklist.

The attached documents at the bottom of the page provide very important information on orientation to include the paperwork required for enrollment--most of these documents are loaded in WINGS and need to be completed and re-uploaded in WINGS prior to orientation.  One of those documents is the AFROTC Form 28, which is required to participate in AES 294 - Air Force Physical Fitness. You will need to provide your Sports Physical in WINGS or no later than our first PT class.

Physical Fitness Preparation

Be prepared for the baseline (ungraded) Air Force Physical Fitness Assessment (PFA) tentatively scheduled within the first month of ASU class start date. The baseline assessment provides a starting point for all cadets to improve upon during the course. The AFROTC fitness program follows guidance in accordance with the Air Force Fitness Program.  The Air Force Fitness Program goal is to motivate Airmen to participate in a year-round physical conditioning program that emphasizes total fitness, to include proper aerobic conditioning, strength and flexibility training, and healthy eating.

Some categories are judged on time, while others are judged on repetitions. For example, to achieve the highest cardio score, a 22-year-old male can either run 1.5 miles in under nine minutes and 12 seconds, or complete at least 100 laps back and forth in the shuttle run.

The minimum amount of exercise that Airmen must finish varies by age and gender. Men younger than 25 must complete 1.5 miles within 15 minutes and 50 seconds. They also need to accomplish at least 36 shuttles, 30 regular pushups, 15 modified push-ups, 39 sit-ups, 21 reverse crunches or a forearm plank lasting at least 1 minute and five seconds.

Women under 25 must complete 1.5 miles within 18 minutes and 56 seconds. They are also required to log at least 22 shuttles, 15 pushups, six modified pushups, 35 sit-ups, 11 reverse crunches and a plank lasting at least 55 seconds.

In the AFROTC program, all cadets will be expected to perform the 1.5 mile run, regular pushups, and regular sit-ups to complete the PFA. 

The full scoring chart can be found here.

The scoring chart breaks down how fast or how many reps someone must run to be deemed at low, moderate or high risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer and other health problems.

If you have any questions about orientation, please review our FAQs section.  If you want to meet with an AFROTC advisor, call the detachment at 480-965-3181 to schedule an appointment.
