How It Works
Even though Air Force ROTC DET 842 is located at UTSA,
students from the universities listed above can join our
program in accordance with the crosstown agreement between
UTSA and their university. In fact, we have approximately
twenty cadets that are crosstown students.
As a student from another university, you can apply to
UTSA as a special non-degree seeking student for the sole
purpose of participating in the ROTC program. YOU MUST APPLY FOR ADMISSION BEFORE THE
UTSA DEADLINE. You would
attend ROTC classes at UTSA's 1604 campus and physical
training with the cadet corps.
As a freshman or sophomore cadet, you can expect to spend
about five hours in ROTC activities per week, not including
your travel time. The biggest hurdle for crosstown cadets
is working out a schedule conflict between both
universities’ classes. The freshman/sophomore ROTC classes
at UTSA are one credit hour courses; you can register for a
Tuesday or Thursday class.
When you register for class, you'll also be automatically
registered for a 2-hour lab on Thursday 4:00-5:45. Make sure you don't have
any class schedule conflicts. Finally, you'll join the cadet corps for physical
training on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
Students attending the University of the Incarnate Word are eligible for the Hispanic Serving Institute scholarship
and the In-College Scholarship Program. Students attending Trinity University, Saint Mary's University, Our Lady of
the Lake University, and the UT Health Science Center are eligible for the In-College Scholarship Program.
The University of the Incarnate Word and the UT Health Science Center have accredited nursing programs that meet
eligibility for our nursing scholarships. And all students are eligible for
Express scholarships. Click here to review the Scholarships page.
