    Hello. I am a college student who is currently applying to the USAFA. Because I am in college I have to send a Supplemental Documentation Form with a copy of my college transcript. How long does it take for them to receive this document, as I sent it last Friday?

    Also it says "Gather the documents listed below and send copies to : USAFA/RRS 2304 Cadet Drive Ste 200 USAFA, CO 80840-5025". Just to make sure, they want a copy and not the actual transcript correct?

    Expect this to take a little time...normal mail rates from Mesa (where I live) to the "Zoo" (USAFA) are anywhere from 2-3 days.

    THEN...realize that the RRS folks will get the paperwork, route it to the appropriate person to evaluate and enter it. When they get it, expect they'll have a PILE on their desk already...

    So what I'm saying here is give it a week before you even become curious. Next Monday...call your USAFA counselor and casually ask if they've received it. The counselors are all-powerful when it comes to their candidates and they'll be able to track it down, if necessary.

    Not to worry!

    Takes time for paperwork to catch up. Admissions Counselor said the file went to the panel about two weeks ago. Got a postcard yesterday saying the app was complete

    I sent in my transcripts (plus other extra documentation needed for homeschool students) in early September. I called my counselor to make sure she received it. On October 1st, I left a message asking if I needed to send anything else in concerning transcripts, senior year schedule, and school profile. In email reply, counselor said I have everything in; but seemed a little irritated, so I've not asked any more questions about it. Transcripts are the last thing I need checked off of my online application.

    They got my transcripts in pretty quick so it made me wonder about why this was taking so long. Thanks for the answers, now all I have to do is finish up those pesky essay questions!
