USAFA Graduation Week 2014
22-28 May 2014


Grad week information will be e-mailed to cadet parents/guests who register via the Graduation Registration site; the registration page will be active by 1 April 2014 (link will be in left navigation column). Information includes the Graduation brochure, schedule of events, Superintendent letter and parking pass. All items may be printed at home. If you are not able to print the items, please ask your cadet to print the documents and send them to you or provide them upon your arrival.

Please make sure to coordinate your visit with your cadet, as he/she will need to pick up your graduation ceremony tickets. Graduating cadets will receive as many Grad Ceremony tickets as they need for their guests.
