SUBJECT: Fall 2015 AFROTC New Student Orientation Program
1. Thank you for your interest in the AFROTC program at The University of Iowa! We look forward to meeting you and helping you to achieve your goal of becoming a commissioned officer in the world’s greatest Air Force!

2. Each fall semester, AFROTC Det 255 offers a New Student Orientation (NSO) Program for all new cadets. NSO is a one-day introduction and overview to AFROTC that is recommended for all new cadets. You may bring your family to NSO. NSO includes a detailed AFROTC program overview, a briefing on AFROTC Scholarship opportunities, and an in-processing session that includes cadet records, your initial body mass index verification (weigh-in), and equipment/uniform issue. Attendance is not mandatory, but it is highly encouraged and very beneficial to ALL new cadets. Please RSVP to for the NSO program by 1 August 2015. Please include number of guests that will accompany you. If you would like to inprocess before NSO, contact MSgt Corey Jones at or 319-353-5362 to schedule an appointment.

3. NSO will be held on Friday, 21 August 2015 at the National Guard Armory (4540 Melrose Ave, Iowa City, 52246). Please bring the following items to NSO:

a. State certified birth certificate with raised seal (original copy)

b. Social Security card (original copy)

c. Selective Service card (males only)

d. Copy of ACT/SAT scores

e. Most recent transcripts

4. In this package, you will find the following guides:
a. Tentative NSO Schedule (Attachment 1): Final agenda will be emailed no later than

8 Aug 2015

b. Fall 2015 Class Scheduling Guide (Attachment 2): Please use this guide to schedule the appropriate AFROTC courses. This guide also includes the course information required to complete the Cross-Town Registration Application. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us at the Detachment at 319-353-5362 or 319-335-9210.

c. Parking Map and Directions (Attachment 3)

5. If you have prior military service, to include prior enrollment in a Service Academy, you must provide a copy of your DD Form 214 as indicated on the New Cadet Checklist. Also, if you have been administratively disenrolled from an officer candidate program in the past (military service academy or any ROTC program in college), you must provide your Form 785 and contact information for the Service Academy or ROTC Unit. In either case, please contact the Operations Flight Commander to discuss your particular situation.
6. All cadets in AFROTC will be scheduled for a medical examination through the Department of Defense Medical Examination Review Board (DODMERB). This is your “Military Entrance Physical.” Only High School Scholarship Program (HSSP) selectees are required to have a certified DODMERB physical before entering AFROTC. All other new cadets will be scheduled for their DODMERB physical within the first year of AFROTC. You must be certified by DODMERB in order to obtain a Scholarship. If you have any medical concerns that you think may preclude you from military service, please refer to the DODMERB website: Detachment 255 does not have personnel on staff that are qualified to make a determination about your medical suitability for military service. I will be happy to answer any questions you have, but keep in mind that I can only provide empirical information based on similar cases we have seen in the past. DODMERB is the ONLY authority for all medical qualification issues.
7. Congratulations on your decision to pursue a career in the United States Air Force! Most of your questions will be answered during NSO, but please don’t hesitate to contact the Operations Officer, Major Anthony Clark, or 319-335-9210 if you have any questions. You may also call the Det 255 Office Line at 319-335-9205 for assistance. On behalf of the Det 255 Staff, welcome to Det 255; we look forward to meeting you in the fall!

ANTHONY S. CLARK, Maj, USAF Operations Officer

Leadership Laboratory (LLAB)
LLAB is a learning environment for Air Force cadets. During LLAB, upper level cadets get an opportunity to practice their leadership and teaching abilities, while the younger cadets focus on learning new concepts and beginning their leadership practice. LLAB is at 0730 on Thursday mornings, and usually begins at the South Gym of the Field House. Cadets must also bring their student ID in order to access the facilities, and must bring their detachment ID card in order to mark their attendance at the session. Most cadets arrive between 0700 and 0710 and generally congregate in the lounge in the basement of the detachment (South Quad). The specific location, uniform, and plan of activities for each LLAB is announced in each week’s OPORD.
