    Hello all!

    I'm currently on a 4 year Army ROTC scholarship and am applying for the USAFA co 2023, meaning if I get appointed I will have completed my freshman and sophomore years under the 4 year scholarship. Does a service academy appointment "trump" my ROTC service obligation? I've heard it does if you do Army ROTC to USMA, but I haven't heard anything about Army ROTC to USAFA.

    I haven't heard anything about this either, but my guess is that you would be released to go to the academy if you were accepted. If you were accepted and for some reason they did not want to release you, I don't think it would be too difficult for you to get academy officials to contact Army ROTC personnel to explain the situation and put a little pressure on them to let you go.

    There will be no issue in getting released from your AROTC contract, even if you are in your second year. a Service Academy appointment trumps the ROTC contract.
