    Currently I am active duty AF. I received and accepted a Prep School slot. I have yet to receive information for out processing. Do we receive a rift, orders or do we simply speak to the MPF? It is my understanding that we will be assigned as active reserve.

    If your portal looks like mine, under 'status' it says "look for travel information and in-processing requirements to be posted here by late April", and I suspect (assume) it will have clear directions on when/how to get your orders (they will be orders). My ALO told me the MPF always fubars the orders for AD going to the academy so your ALO is more than likely familiar with the process and can help you if the need arises. I wouldn't worry too much about it, I'm just waiting for our instructions to be sent out.

    Patiently.

    T-110 days, but who's counting?

    Hey Eagle!

    I called around some yesterday because my leadership was asking questions about out-processing too and ended up getting in touch with a TSgt at Cadet Personnel; she said that directions would be rolling out for AD in a couple of weeks -- meanwhile, I'll be chewing my nails down to the quick and refreshing my portal non-stop on shift... I'm not sure if that timeline is different for Prep vs. direct entry, but you could always give them a call to verify? DSN: 333-2081.

    (I've got no chill and I've calculated T time down to hours... Whoops?)

    Thank you, both of you.

    I called the Academy and spoke to an airmen, she said to expect further guidance mid April. If we haven't heard anything by then, then we need to contact our MPF and/or CSS.

    Haha no, I have Col L. He told me there were about 8 other applicants within this area. Seems like there is quite a few at Eglin applying for USAFA. Small world though.

    For sure. Hopefully this means our MPF is familiar with the process and won't have any issues with generating our orders!

    One of the airmen in the MPF is applying. So, we should be fine.

    Can someone that has received their out-processing instructions send me an email? Ethan.kent@us.af.mil

    I have my out processing checklist. However, I am on leave and won't be back until May. I can email you then.

    You guys are lucky to even know! I am not eligible for prep school and I am dying to find out. I check my portal constantly. How did everyone find out?

    Your commander will receive word before your portal updates.
