In-Processing Day

Four-degree (freshman) cadets will in-process on Thursday, 24 June. In-Processing Day (I-Day) begins with appointees lining up by squadron. Guests may watch as their appointees board buses, as this will be the final opportunity to see them before Parent’s Weekend. Appointees will be taken to the Cadet Area and begin immediately receiving instruction from upper classmen before heading up the Honor Ramp for the first time. Appointees will then take the Oath of Office and become a Basic Cadet. This will be proceeded by haircuts, immunizations, and the issuance of uniforms and dorms. The Commandant conducts a ceremonial class Swearing In ceremony the following day, formally kicking off 6-weeks of Basic Cadet Training (BCT).
