    Hello...my son is interested in the AROTC program and has submitted his application online. When checking his status, the following message appears:

    We are missing your college board scores (SAT or ACT). Please send a copy of your college board score results to US Army Cadet Command, ATTN: Scholarship Branch, 55 Patch Rd., Bldg. 56 Fort Monroe, VA 23651-1052 or fax it to (757) 788-5781.

    We faxed in copies of his scores 4 days ago--is it common for it to take days to have your application status updated? He has emailed the "contact us" email address on the AROTC website but has received no response.

    Anyone have any experience with a problem like this? Any help/suggestions would be appreciated!

    FAX caused us problems also
    Try scanning and emailing as a PDF to:
    train2lead@usaac.army.mil
    Make certain you include everything to
    identify which application to attach it to.

    Email seems to be the most reliable way to
    communicate with Army Cadet Command.

    If you have a first choice school/Battalion,
    Your son should send the ROO an email - introduce himself,
    then 'CC' emails to Cadet Command to his ROO
    your ROO will appreciate being kept up to speed,
    and can follow up on it if there is a problem.

    Traditionally, they update the portals weekly, not daily, so yes, it can take days, further on it is usually 2X weekly for certain branches.

    However, I do agree with gojack, scanning and emailing is a better option, esp. if you set your emails to acknowledge receipt.

    For our DS, we faxed and emailed. We also created a notebook for every piece of information ever sent.

    If you send anything via snail mail, pay the extra money to send it with receipt required. Copy everything before mailing.

    This is the time you utilize the JIC method.

    My DS emailed, faxed and FedEx'd (USPS overnight is also a great choice) everything turned into Cadet Command or any other ROTC scholarship program.
