If you are interested in pursuing an appointment to the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) and plan to visit the campus, you may wish to participate one of our admissions events. We offer two types of events throughout the summer.

Our admissions events are restricted to only those students who are eligible and interested in applying to USAFA and their guests. These events can help prospective applicants gain a deeper understanding of the Air Force Academy environment.

Our admissions event is approximately 2 and a half hours. This event will consist of a presentation given by an admissions advisor (a recent graduate of the Academy), a question and answer session with an Admissions Counselor present, and a walking tour given by a current cadet.

Touring campus is a physically strenuous activity that includes walking long distances, often uphill, and several flights of stairs. We recommend visitors drink plenty of water and check the weather forecast one to two days prior to the visit. Please dress comfortably and appropriately for our changing weather.

When nonessential USAFA personnel are directed not to report to work due to weather conditions, the scheduled admissions event will be canceled. This is for the safety of both our visitors and our admissions team. Check local media sources for status when there is current or projected inclement weather.
