Physical Fitness Assessment (FA)

The FA will be given during orientation. The assessment includes:

  • Waist measurement
  • One minute of timed pushups
  • One minute of timed situps
  • A timed 1.5-mile run

Prior to taking the FA, an AFROTC Pre-Participatory Sports Physical, Form 28, must be filled out by a qualified physician. This documentation must be brought to orientation. Note that to pass the assessment, you must meet the minimums for each scored exercise and attain a score of 75 out of 100 overall.

Supporting documentation for minimum expectations to pass the U.S. Air Force PFA for males and females under age 30:

The AFROTC program is aimed at producing officers to lead the men and women of the Air Force, so students unable to pass the fitness assessment and remain within in the height and weight standards will not be allowed into the program. However, students will be given a second opportunity approximately two weeks later to pass the assessment if they fail it the first time.
