Members of other branches of the service wanting to join AFROTC may apply for the Professional Officer Course-Early Release Program (POC-ERP) or the Airman Scholarship and Commissioning Program (ASCP).

They must first obtain a conditional release from their enlistment from their service's personnel system.
You can do this with a DD Form 368, 
Request for Conditional Release (check DoD Forms website for the latest version). Have it filled out then email it to us at afrotc.rrue@us.af.mil to get the Requester's Signature.  When you receive it back process it through your chain of command for the appropriate signatures then include it in your application package.
