    I was sent paperwork and fingerprint cards today in the mail, and step one on the paperwork says to download SF 86 from my cadet portal, but I don't know where to find this form. Anybody know?

    The SF-86 was attached to an email sent to you by the West Point security office. It was ONLY to be used for you to gather information, e.g. reference addresses, emails, telephone #'s, and write it down thereon, for later use in completing the EQIP.

    The Security Office at WP does NOT want you to mail or email them a copy of the SF-86 that you completed by hand. They go solely off the EQIP that is completed online.

    I repeat again. The SF-86 was just to help you gather data so you would have it readily available when completing EQIP.

    If you have completed the EQIP online, then there was a step at the end, after certification, where you could print out the information you submitted.

    If I understand the process correctly, you only need to send the Signature Forms (Release Authorizations) and the Fingerprint Cards to West Point. And they prefer the signature forms to be scanned PDF and emailed to them.

    Clear as mud?

    Roger. Would you suggest filling this out before the online E-QIP or does it matter?

    You need to look through it and see what questions will be asked. The EQIP is basically going to ask you all the questions that are on the SF-86. A lot of yes/no questions are easy, but for most of the references it is going to ask for First, Middle, and Last names, an address, two telephone numbers, and an email address. You will need one neighbor, three OTHER references, and still another person that can validate your education. That's the minimum.

    If you've had foreign travel. employment, etc. you will need specifics.

    That's what the SF-86 is good for, to record that stuff ahead of time before you log in to EQIP and start answering questions.

    EQIP does allow you to save and log out so you could stop if you need to gather more information. But, don't delay. There's a time limit for how soon you need to get it submitted.
