Prospective Cadet,

Your interest in the AFROTC program is commendable as is your desire to pursue a commission in the world's greatest Air Force. As your journey to become a military officer begins, take advantage of every opportunity, always seek self-improvement, and perform at your best. The cadre of Detachment 835 stand ready to mentor, support, and help you along the way; however, YOU are ultimately responsible for your success and completion of the program.

To help you prepare for your upcoming semester in AFROTC, the Cadet Wing has organized a New Cadet Orientation Program (NCOP). During orientation, you will be introduced to our program, be briefed on expectations from the Commander, accomplish the in-processing checklist, and finalize your enrollment in AFROTC.

1. You must first complete your WINGS application and other documents before attending NCOP.

2. Please use the following google drive doc to access the "Application Packet Assistance" file which has all of the information needed to complete your documents. The file will walk you through the paperwork line by line and block by block, so please use this resource to minimize the amount of corrections needed the day of NCOP.

**All documents must be uploaded to WINGS by January 5, 2024 @ 1630.

Also, as a future cadet, it is imperative that you keep your WINGS login information, as this will be used constantly throughout your ROTC career.

3. Once all of the necessary documents have been uploaded to WINGS, you must email your full name and the email used to create your WINGS account to Additionally, you must choose a date for orientation. These spots are first come, first serve.
