Middlesex County College and Rutgers University have a cross-town agreement that allows qualified Middlesex County College students to enroll in the Rutgers University Air Force or Army ROTC programs.
Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC)
Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) is the largest and oldest source of commissioned officers for the United States Air Force. It is a voluntary program of military education and leadership development open to qualified male and female students of all academic majors. The program is designed to recruit, educate, and commission officer candidates through college campus programs based on Air Force requirements.
