Can you have tattoos at the Air Force Academy or any other military academy?
Yes, for accurate information, ask any recruiter from that Branch. They are subject matter experts.
For the Air Force, the tattoo must be kept within the standard of the Air Force Instruction Policy (AFI/Regulation).
For the Army (Military Academy/West Point), it must be within the standards of the Army Regulation.

There is no tuition. You actually get paid to go their. 700$ per month, but most of it is used on uniforms, and food, with a tiny bit left over for personal spending.
The Air Force Academy, like West Point and Annapolis, is fully federally funded. As such, cadets do not pay any tuition or room and board. In fact cadets are given a paycheck based on 35% of Second Lieutenant pay in the Air Force. Expenses are incurred in the mandatory purchasing of equipment such …as uniforms, however this is fully covered by cadet pay leaving a considerable amount of money left for discretionary use. Cadets do have to pay for textbooks out of pocket, usually $200-$700 per semester depending on courses taken and the condition of the books, but these expenses can also be covered by cadet pay.

In addition to needing an appointment, which is an acceptance directly from the Air Force Academy based upon physical, academic, and leadership based performance, as well as a medical clearance from the Department of Defense Medical Examination Review Board, all cadets must receive a separate nomina…tion from at least one of the following sources: Senator : Either of the two Senators from your home state may provide a nomination. Each Senator may have up to 5 cadets attending each academy at a given time on their nomination. This nomination generally requires a resume to be mailed in or submitted online, and possibly an interview either directly with the Senator or with a panel representing them. Representative: The Representative in Congress for your specific district may provide a nomination. This is generally an identical process to that of the Senators, including the 5 current cadet limit. Vice President: The Vice President's application is nearly identical to that of the Senators and Congressmen, except for that the nomination can be granted to anyone nationwide and nominations are based entirely on application packages, not interviews. I believe the Vice President has the same 5 cadet cap as members of Congress. President: Any eligible child of an active duty or career retired member of any branch of the service may apply for the Presidential nomination. While this nomination is automatically granted to all who qualify upon receiving the application letter in the mail, the Academy may only accept up to 100 cadets using this nomination each year, so it is best to seek a second nomination. AFROTC/AFJROTC: Instructors from distinguished units may nominate up to five cadets per unit, however, I believe the cap on this category is 20 cadets per year. Children of Medal of Honor Recipients: Any child of a Medal of Honor recipient, living or dead, receives an automatic nomination and needs only an appointment to enter the Academy. I have likely missed a small category or two, such as I believe there exist categories for children of disabled veterans and children of prisoners of war but the vast majority of cadets enter on nominations from either the Senator, Congressman, or Presidential nomination categories.

If you are accepted into the US Air Force Academy the costs are waived but you have to serve a commission upon completion.
Basic Military Training is initial accession training for Enlisted Air Force Personnel. The Air Force Academy is a school for commissioned officers, and as such, after first getting accepted to the Air Force Academy, you must still go through Basic Cadet Training. If you plan on attending the Academ…y and have the ability to get accepted, I strongly recommend not entering enlisted basic training, as I have heard some graduates joke about how they went through 5 different Basic Trainings: Enlisted Basic, Academy Preparatory School (Where almost all prior enlisted cadets must spend a year before even beginning their 4 years at the Academy) Basic, Air Force Academy Basic, and then twice through the Academy Basic as cadre/instructors. The Air Force Academy application is a long process which includes writing samples, academic resumes, interviews, as well as medical examinations and physical fitness testing. The process of interviews, essays, and resumes is also repeated to acquire a Congressional Nomination to attend. For more specific information on this process, contact an Admission Liaison Officer.

There are no Greek organizations at the Air Force Academy. The Cadet Wing is broken down into 40 Cadet Squadrons, each of about 100 cadets. These squadrons effectively take the place of fraternities and sororities, as you will live in your squadron's area of the dorms and will develop close bonds w…ith them through inter-squadron competitions and other activities. One major difference is that squadrons are randomly assigned. The only situation in which a cadet may choose his/her squadron is through the legacy program, which allows cadets who have had close relatives graduate from the Academy go into the same squadron as their relative had been. ( Full Answer )
Yes, you can apply to the academy until you are 22. The rule is you have to graduate before you are 27.

There are multiple methods of being disenrolled from the Air Force Academy. The most "friendly" is the AFCW Form 34. This form is filled out by a cadet to voluntarily leave the Academy. Processing takes a few weeks, and then the cadet is free to leave as a civilian if they have not yet begun their t…hird year. Cadets can be involuntarily disenrolled for academic, physical, or military performance deficiencies as well as excessive disregard for rules or violation of the Uniform Code of Military justice. Violation of the Cadet Honor Code, "We will not lie, steal, or cheat, nor tolerate among us anyone who does," is also grounds for immediate disenrollment. Every disenrollment, whether voluntary or involuntarily must be given final approval by the Superintendent of Cadets. Also, any disenrollment after the first day of classes of the third (Junior) year carries a commitment to serve time enlisted in the Air Force. ( Full Answer )
The answer to this question is largely dependent on your personal performance thus far. The average high school GPA of an appointee is around 3.7-3.8 and the average ACT score is around 31. There is a solid minimum ACT cutoff as well, which I believe is at 24, meaning any subtest score below a 24 ma…kes you ineligible for appointment. In addition to high academic achievement, to be competitive you must be able to meet and exceed minimum scores on all events of the Candidate Fitness Assessment, which consists of a kneeling basketball throw, pullups, situps, pushups, and a 1 mile run in a given time allotment. A strong resume of extracurricular participation is also highly encouraged. The Academy's admission office states it strongly favors applicants who are in leadership roles in a few organizations than simply members of many. One last crucial element to even be able to compete is eligibility. To be eligible, an applicant must be 23 or younger as of the first day of Basic Cadet Training, unmarried, and have no dependants, as well as receiving medical clearance. You must be within the Air Force's height and weight requirements for active duty and not have any disqualifying medical disorders. Certain medical disorders will be waived if your application package is strong enough. ( Full Answer )
Assuming this question is about the United States Air Force Academy, you do not have to be in the military to get into the Air Force Academy. The majority of cadets are straight out of high school and it is their first exposure to the military when they arrive on the first day of Basic Cadet Trainin…g. However, on the first day of Basic Cadet Training the summer before your freshman year, you officially become a member of the Air Force. You are at that point on active duty with the full time job of getting your degree and earning your commission as a second lieutenant. In exchange for four years of tuition free world-class education, graduates must serve a minimum of 5 years on active duty as an officer and then another 3 in the Reserves before their committment to the military is completed.

Fives years of your life, basically. If selected to go to any of the United States Military Academies, your tuition is covered. Upon graduation, you'll be expected to serve a minimum of five years as a commissioned officer in the Armed Forces.
Yes and No. The Air Force Academy does accept transfer students, in fact, many cadets do a year elsewhere before coming to the Academy. The bottom line for transfers is that all graduates attend the Air Force Academy for 4 years. If you transfer, you will have to start as a freshman, or a Fourth Cla…ss Cadet, even if transferring from an AFROTC unit where you have already finished your time as a Fourth Class or maybe even Third Class AFROTC Cadet. ( Full Answer )
First, an applicant must meet all eligibility requirements. This includes: being a United States citizen (unless applying to represent an allied nation of the United States), being 23 or under as of the first day of Basic Cadet Training, being unmarried with no dependants, and being able to pass all… medical clearance exams (waivers for many medical disorders will be given if the application package is strong enough). The Academy looks for a "Whole Person Concept" in applicants. While extremely strong performance in one area may make up for deficiency in another, there are minimums which may disqualify applicants if they are not met. For instance, I believe the minimum ACT subtest score is either 24 or 25, meaning that if any of the four subtest scores on the ACT are below the minimum score, an applicant is disqualified. The average ACT composite score for appointees is 31. Physical fitness is assessed through a test known as the Candidate Fitness Assessment which consists of a kneeling basketball throw, pullups, situps, pushups, and a 1 mile run. While the Academy does not publish minimum scores for this test, I believe there are minimums in each area which must be met. Averages for appointees are published, so it is best to meet or exceed all published averages to be highly competitive. ( Full Answer )

For a complete listing, look on the Air Force Academy website or the Admissions website for a copy of the curriculum handbook. While all graduates receive a Bachelors of Science degree, available majors are fairly diverse. They are split into two broad categories, "Technical" and "Non-Technical," al…so known as "Techie" and "Fuzzy." Techie majors include multiple disciplines of engineering, sciences such as physics, chemistry, and biology, mathematics, and more. Fuzzy majors include English, History, Behavioral Sciences, Management, and more. All cadets regardless of major are required to take a fairly technical curriculum in comparison to other colleges. Every cadet must take at least 2 semesters of calculus in addition to core courses in engineering such as statics and even an introduction to astronautical engineering. Cadets also have to take numerous English, Behavioral Science, History, and Military Strategic Studies Courses, as well as at least two semesters of foreign language. Foreign languages offered include Spanish, French, Portuguese, German, Russian, Japanese, Chinese, and Arabic. Minors are available in all available foreign languages. ( Full Answer )

The Air Force Academy is not a private college because it is fully Federally owned and operated. However, it does not quite fit the description of a public college, as it is operated by the federal government instead of that of a state and its national selection allows it to be highly selective in a…dmissions, even more so than many private colleges. It falls into a unique category, that of Federal Service Academies. The United States government operates all of the following as Federal Service Academies: The United States Air Force Academy, The United States Military Academy, The United States Naval Academy, The United States Coast Guard Academy, and the United States Merchant Marine Academy.

All cadets are required to live on campus all four years in the Academy's two dormitories, Vandenberg Hall and Sijan Hall. Living off campus is not available, nor are cadets permitted to maintain a residence within 150 miles of the campus. The sole exception to this rule is something called Top Off…, in which First Class Cadets, seniors about to graduate and become officers, are given special permission to live off base at the end of their last year at the Academy to prepare for life after graduation. However, this usually is only available for 1-2 months before graduation, depending on the performance of the cadet wing as a whole, and as such finding a residence is nearly impossible and those who choose to normally are simply living with a significant other or family member in the area.

No. Air Force Academy Cadets are in the Active Duty Air Force. Going to college is their full time job, and as such holding any outside job is actually against the rules of the institution. An enlisted reservist may enter the Air Force Academy to become an active duty officer, but they will have to… be excused from their term of enlistment by their commander before beginning Basic Cadet Training the summer before their year of entry.

In addition to charging no tuition to attend classes, as well as no room and board, cadets are paid 35% of the base pay for a Second Lieutenant. This would figure out to be roughly $960 per month, however due to expenses such as paying for uniforms and other services automatically subtracted from ca…det pay, cadets generally receive between $250 and $400 per month. Cadets are also given a daily food allowance for each day, however it is only received by the cadet when on leave away from the Academy; this money is usually routed directly to Mitchell Hall, the cadet dining facility.

Presuming you are talking about the US Air Force Academy, the answer is YES. Generally speaking, you owe 8 years of duty in the Air Force in exchange for your education at the Academy. After 5 years of active duty service, you may be able to serve the remainder of your term in the Reserves. Occasi…onally, the military may decide that it does not wish to retain you after your initial 5 years of active duty, and you may be discharged then, with no further obligation. ( Full Answer )
