Enrollment and Orientation

Orientation

The Spring 2023 New Student Orientation date is set for Wednesday, 04 January 2023.  We will meet in the Social Sciences Building, Room 105 on the ASU Tempe campus; sign-in for orientation will begin at 0730.  Please ensure all of your WINGS information is completed two weeks prior to the orientation date. Additionally, please see the attached files at the bottom of this page and read over them prior to your arrival.

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 provides 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 Training. You will need to provide your Sports Physical in WINGS or in person no later than the first PT class of the semester. 

If you have any questions about orientation, please review our FAQs section.  If you would like to meet with an AFROTC staff member, please give us a call at 480-965-3181 to schedule an appointment
