Penn State Altoona Campus

Students at Penn State Altoona are eligible to participate in the AFROTC program at University Park (UP). Each year we have several students participate in the program by commuting two days a week to complete their AIR Class and Leadership Laboratory. Students are responsible for their own transportation to UP, but many students carpool to make traveling safe, convenient, and economical. Altoona Cadets also participate in physical training (“PT”) with the Army ROTC at the Altoona campus once a week.


In one or two years, you can transfer to the University Park Campus and complete the AFROTC program with your peers.

To enroll in the program, find out more information, or speak to a fellow Altoona student in the AFROTC program, complete the form below.
