Aerospace Studies Curriculum
Our curriculum serves to fulfill all requirements to commission in the Air and Space Forces upon graduation from your degree. The program is broken into two distinct courses: General Military Course (GMC) and the Professional Officer Course (POC). The GMC consists of the first two years of AFROTC whereas the POC are the last two years. To be eligible to register as a cadet in the POC program, you must be selected by the POC Selection Process in the spring semester of your sophomore year (typically while you are enrolled in USAF 252).
General Military Course (GMC)
GMC includes USAF 131/132, 251/252, and Leadership Laboratory (LLab) USAF 100 and corresponds to the freshman and sophomore years of your academic program. This is the first part of AFROTC’s four- and three-year programs. GMC is composed of a one-hour class and two-hour LLab per week. Two credit hours are awarded for each semester course successfully completed. GMC is available to all WVU students.
Professional Officer Course (POC)
POC includes USAF 371/372, 481/482 and Leadership Laboratory (LLab) and corresponds to the junior and senior years of your academic program. This is the second part of AFROTC's four and three-year programs. POC is composed of a three-hour class and two-hour LLab per week. Four credit hours are awarded for each semester course successfully completed. Unlike GMC, POC is only available to those that were selected for the course during the final semester of their GMC.
