    If you are diagnosed with asthma after 13 does it disqualify you from all service academy's?

    Yes. For all service academies/ROTC and to commission you have to be DoDMERB qualified. One of the disqualification codes is " asthma after the 13th birthday." However, I think some organizations do a waiver but I'm not sure if they do waivers for asthma.

    Have you searched and read everything on this forum?? The answer is yes, no, maybe, it depends. Generally, if a true diagnosis was given after age 13 with meds prescribed and you're currently taking them, yes you will be DQ'd. If you were given an inhaler after 13 but not actually diagnosed, you may get a remedial or a waiver. Each issue is looked at on a case-by-case basis. No one here can say definitively. Answer the questionnaire truthfully, include all info, get your document history in order, and be prepared for anything.
