POC-ERP offers active duty enlisted personnel the opportunity to earn a commission who can complete all bachelor degree and commissioning requirements in 2 years as an AFROTC cadet. Applicants are not authorized to pursue a second bachelors or graduate degree.
Note: Applicants within one year of completing their bachelor's degree, with a bachelor's degree or desiring to earn graduate degrees may not participate in this program. They should seek commissioning through OTS.
Those selected separate from the active duty Air Force, join an AFROTC detachment and become a full-time college student. The Air Force provides them a monthly nontaxable stipend. Upon graduation and completion of the program, you will be commissioned as a second lieutenant and will then be returned to active duty with a military obligation of 4 years active and 4 years reserves.
A selection board is held once a year. The board utilizes the "whole person" concept to evaluate applicants. As part of the board process, applicants will be evaluated on their ability to put their package together in the proper format in accordance with the ECP Package Checklist and directions on this site. It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure that the package is complete.
While the board considers all documents in an application package, they typically focus on the applicant's academic performance, the commander's recommendation, and the airman's duty performance history to determine the applicant's eligibility.
Airmen selected will receive instructions and be required to complete additional post selection actions. Once all actions have been completed they will be authorized to separate no earlier than 10 days prior to their class start date the following fall term.
ALL waiver requests are due to HQ AFROTC/RRUE NET 1 July and NLT 1 August each year. Application packages must reach HQ AFROTC/RRUE NET 1 September and NLT 15 October each year. Late packages or late waiver requests will not be accepted.
Note: The applicant is ultimately responsible for the completeness and accuracy of their package. The Base Education Center may assist the member in an advisory capacity ONLY.
