    I have recently come across some unique life events...and was considering of changing my Mission Set year to 2020 or even 2021. I'm currenty MS2019.

    Is there an age limit (i.e. Cannot be over a certain age) to commissioning?

    From the UC Davis website:
    Be 17 years of age within the first semester of your freshman year, and must not reach your 31st birthday by 31 December of the year in which you will graduate from college and receive your commission.

    Oh, thank you for the info. I'd found the same statement from other colleges, but wasn't sure if it was the same across all ROTC BNs.

    I assume that the age thing is non-waiverable? I'll be no older than 26 at the most whenever I commission, if I extend my MS year, so it wouldn't apply to me
