    My son, a C4C, sent me his exam schedule. He finishes on May 11. Does anyone know when they have to be back if they go home, in order to partake in the graduation ceremony?

    Thanks for any help given.

    They have to stay at the academy until their summer vacation period begins. It is possible to get a pass prior to graduation week but they must be there for graduation week.

    Never mind. I found it. Thanks anyway. The Graduation is May 25. Graduation week is May 20 - 25. So he could come home from the 12th to the 19th in theory.

    Nope - they will have to be back on May 15. Last year it was by 11 pm.

    They can submit paperwork for approval to come home after their last final. Ours came home on a Thursday last year and return on Sunday. Will be putting in paperwork to do similiar this year as it will be his only opportunity to come home as he is giving up summer leave for summer language immersion in Equador.

    I concur with Aggie. Probably back on the 15th. The week of the 16th is summer prep week. There really isn't much to do for 4*s since they are not training for cadre positions, but they do have to be here.

    and honestly, that prep week four dig year was one of the best weeks i had in my entire cadet career. There were a few random briefings to attend, but otherwise it was just downtime hanging with your freshman squadmates. we did a lot of volleyball, grill-outs, frisbee golf, and really just enjoyed ourselves.
