Circumstances Don’t Make a Cadet, Commitment Does

Students who have unique circumstances such as living abroad or having been a former cadet are still encouraged to apply to the United States Air Force Academy. There are just additional logistics that need to be considered.

Patriotism Knows No Boundaries

We understand distance cannot determine a potential cadet’s sense of duty. If you are a U.S. citizen living in another country, there is still a place for you at the Academy.

Living Abroad

Pick Up Where You Started

To be considered for reappointment, you must take all required examinations and submit all required documents. Even though you’ve been through the steps before, you are expected to complete everything again.
