    I have been selected for a three year ROTC scholarship. Even though I’m not on scholarship, do I still have to get medical clearance now or wait until my scholarship begins? Also, I have an account already through DODMERB for the Airforce Academy, does that account transfer or do I have to begin another one?

    Corbin -- the DoDMERB account you created for USAFA will be the same you use for AROTC, and the DoDMERB exam you did for USAFA should "transfer" for use by the AROTC . . . I don't think you will need to do anymore as long as you didn't receive a DQ and don't need a medical waiver.

    Typically, AROTC prioritizes the 4yr AROTC scholarship winners ahead of the 3 yr scholarship recipients. Sometimes that means the DoDMERB for the 3yr recipients doesn't occur until sometime during their freshman year in college, however, since yours is already done, AROTC should just use what you have already completed. Make sure you let your AROTC ROO know that you've already completed DoDMERB for USAFA. They should be able to see that on their version of the DoDMERB portal, but it doesn't hurt to send them a respectful email or make a respectful call to let them know.

    Best wishes to you and thank you for your willingness to serve.

    It will all be the same account. Are you already qualified in the system? If you are, then you are done. If you are disqualified for whatever reason, ROTC will request a waiver independently of what ever USAFA did.

    The exam is good for two years basically so you will not need another.

    If you ended up going to ROTC, your program will need to request your DODMERB to their program, and then you would be reviewed for waiver. If you get a waiver now, it will only be good for the USAFA.
