Hello, I am a Freshman Contracted Cadet on the AROTC 4 year National Scholarship. On my very first day at university, I took and passed the APFT and turned in the paperwork required at the time. At this point I thought my scholarship would be activated and that the Cadet stipend would begin. After several weeks however, I was told that our battalion now wished for us too turn in our 104-Rs Academic Plan as part of the contracting paperwork. With academic advising sessions, this task took several more weeks to complete. It was only last week (13 OCT 11) that the freshman cadets began to actually contract. And now it has been said that even though our Tuition Fees are going to be back paid, we will not be receiving the stipends from the past two months. Is this normal procedure? Thank you in advance for your feedback!
