Transfer Your Talent to New Heights

If you are currently in college and still meet the age eligibility requirements for admission to the United States Air Force Academy, you may still apply.

“I knew there’d be challenges, but that’s part of the reason why I wanted to come here. The best thing about the Academy is the opportunities that come with it.”

Cadet Life

Remain Competitive

Remember to keep track of your achievements in high school and maintain relationships with teachers and counselors who can help you gather required evaluations.

While at your current college or university, enroll and maintain high grades in challenging courses with an emphasis in math, English, lab-based sciences and history.

The Academy will request college transcripts to validate college subjects taken and requisite grades earned.

Retaking and improving your standardized test scores is highly recommended.

Finally, ensure you continue participating in athletic and nonathletic activities to show your leadership potential. Work experience and achievements while at college are also relevant to your application.
