    Is it possible to be disqualified after you have been qualified, specifically after you have started attending the Academy?

    For example, if you are qualified and attend summer indoc/swab training and begin attending the Academy as a Cadet, will they disqualify you and disenroll you if a "history" if a medical issue is found?

    Specifically, minor gastrointestinal issues and Hyperparathyroidism with minimal to no symptoms.

    Medical conditions previously unknown (eg color vision deficiency) or falsified (failure to disclose a known disqualifying condition) may can lead to the situation you describe.

    It's not an everyday occurrence for cadets/mids to be medically disenrolled ("disqualified") after arriving, but it does happen.

    My son said the medical exam he took at USCGA was considerably more thorough than his DoDMERB exam was. The academy exam did find something that was previously unknown and made him really sweat for two or three days while they were deciding if he was in or out of regulation. Fortunately he was in but if he had been out they would have likely sent him home.
