    Just reiterating the title of my thread, but is the E-QIP the same as the SF86 form? I'm seeing other acceptees and parents use the terms interchangeably so am I correct to assume that they are? Thank you!

    No, in this instance, the SF-86 is the old hard copy form that was used to apply for a security clearance, while eQIP is the electronic interface that you would use to to submit nearly identical information under the current system. The SF-86 is merely a reference to help you gather and organize the information that you would need to complete eQIP, especially since you only have 5 days from the time eQIP opens until you have to submit. Most individuals don't have all the required information on hand to fill it out.
