Saint Xavier University Chicago Campus Residence Halls

Air Force ROTC


Air Force ROTC (AFROTC) is offered to Saint Xavier University students in cooperation with the Department of Aerospace Studies at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT). Students who participate in AFROTC may be eligible for AFROTC scholarships, which may partially or fully pay your tuition at SXU. AFROTC is particularly interested in nursing students who may be eligible for non-competitive express scholarships that pay full tuition. There is also a particular interest in Computer Science, Biology and Chemistry majors. If anyone is interested in becoming a United States Air Force Aviator, this would be a program to investigate.

Upon completing your degree and the AFROTC program, you will earn a commission as an officer in the U.S. Air Force and serve a four-year commitment on active duty. For more information on Air Force ROTC and registration, contact the Unit Admissions Officer at 312-567-3525 or afrotc@iit.edu, or go to the AFROTC website.

Note: AFROTC courses are mostly offered at the Illinois Institute of Technology, but some are also offered at Lewis University for the Saint Xavier University students.
