Detachment 650's Mission:

"To recruit, develop, and commission trustworthy, selfless, and professional Second Lieutenants for service to the Nation."

Welcome to the official AFROTC Detachment 650 Webpage! Our program is designed to produce quality military officers for the United States Air Force and the Nation. It is a two- to four-year program, geared to growing outstanding leaders with a broad set of personal, professional, leadership and managerial skills useful in both the Air Force and civilian worlds.   Academic, time-management, communications and interpersonal skills are just some of the areas our program develops, and every cadet is challenged to push themselves into new areas of personal growth daily.

No matter what career field you are interested in, Air Force ROTC can help you achieve your personal goals. We offer scholarships to competitively selected high school seniors, and provide opportunities to earn scholarships after you begin your college career at Ohio University. Cadets receive free tutoring from the Academic Advancement Center and learn in an open, friendly environment built on the idea of cadets helping one another learn and grow.

If selected for an AFROTC scholarship at Ohio University, you may be able to attend college with little or no out-of-pocket expenses.  In addition to the scholarships available, Ohio University provides a generous room and board subsidy for all AFROTC scholarship recipients at the school.

If you are interested in more information on our program or the scholarships we offer, you can check the links above to really get a feel of what it means to be a cadet in the Air Force ROTC!

At Ohio University, Air Force ROTC is administratively part of University College.


On behalf of the Detachment 650, welcome to the Bobcat Wing! We have partnered with Ohio University since 1948 to produce high quality officers for the United State Air Force. We provide many resources to help students succeed academically, physically, and mentally and prepare for the challenges and great opportunities that await them upon graduation. Through this program we build the character, perseverance and strength of cadets so they will emulate the core values we cherish of integrity, service before self, and excellence in all we do.

We are proud of the achievements of many of our commissioned graduates, which include four general officers, and two members of the US Air Force Thunderbirds (one who became the unit commander and lead solo pilot). We are confident our members will also find great success awaiting them. Are you ready to stretch yourself and not just have a good job, but a great career? Give us a call or, better, just stop by and see for yourself!
