Student and Faculty Resources

A consolidated list of resources and quick links.


The U.S. Air Force Academy’s Student Information System is called COMPASS and is composed of several PeopleSoft software suites such as Campus Solutions, Infosilem, and Symplicity. Compass supports most aspects of a cadet’s life, from parking, to room assignment and of course academic scheduling, grades and the graduation process.

Here is the link to the dashboard for SIS. It only works on Mission Net or via Global Protect VPN on other networks.

Blackboard is the Learning Management System used at the Academy that stores and organizes all courses’ e-learning content such as videos, audio, documents, assignments, tests, and cadets’ grades in one place. Blackboard keeps track of cadets’ learning activities, so instructors have a clear overview of student knowledge and progress, and which areas to concentrate efforts in overcoming knowledge deficiencies. Blackboard has multiple APIs to allow integration of software such gradescope, Echo360, YouTube, etc.

The Academy is transitioning specific missions (such as academics) to a commercially hosted network called MissionNet that allows for faster connection speeds and greater bandwidth. The Mission Network (MissionNet) supports most users within the cadet area and allows for greater academic freedom. The MissionNet connects the Academy with the Colorado Front Range Research Consortium, linking major universities along the front range together.
