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 3:30-5:15. 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.
