Hi Everyone - Our DD received a MOC nomination in late Dec., 2016, followed by an offer/appointment to the USAFA Prep School, Class of 2018. We are so proud of her! Can someone please help clarify and confirm that after she successfully completes the ten-month PS program, our DD will NOT need another nomination. We see a lot of ambiguity surrounding this topic on various forums. There's no clear differentiation between civilian students who recently received their MOC nomination (just prior to PS acceptance) and Air Force enlisted members who applied directly to the Prep School via Air Force Form 1786, got accepted, and therefore still need to obtain a nom. Moreover, the USAFA Prep site states the following: "Note that cadet candidates do not need a nomination in order to attend the prep school. They will, however, need nominations in order to gain an appointment to the Academy the following year." Again, "Cadet candidates" could mean either one -- civilian or enlisted, and there's no info regarding current nom. recipients. We are under the impression that her current nomination will automatically carry through/apply to a subsequent, successful USAFA appointment and transition up to the Hill. Please let us know if this assumption is correct. If not, at what point during the PS program would she need to contact her MOC, does she have to go through the entire nom. process again, or is it easier than before? Thank you kindly for your time and consideration!
