WHAT IS NCOP?

New Cadet Orientation Program – NCOP is an orientation event that helps new candidates get started in ROTC. New candidates will learn about the program, proper customs and courtesies, basic drill movements, physical fitness exercises, and be introduced to the other incoming candidates and returning cadets. NCOP is the candidate’s first insight into becoming a part of the Air Force ROTC program at Detachment 390.

NCOP invitations with more details about the event will be emailed out over the summer for the fall start date (December for winter start date).  If you’re interested in Air Force ROTC and attending NCOP, please email afrotc@umich.edu to request an invitation.

If you can not attend NCOP because of a scheduling conflict, please email afrotc@umich.edu .
