Good Morning,
I’m currently an enlisted airman, and I’m trying to obtain a TOS waiver request! How do I go about doing that? It’s been giving My leadership and I the run around around for going on 2 weeks now. I received my candidate packet at the start of November so I have limited time to get everything in!

Similar to USNA, I assume there is a senior enlisted admissions officer at USAFA who supports enlisted candidates. Call Admissions and ask. This is surely not a new problem.

No one on my base seems to know what a TOS Waiver is or where to get it.

Definitely pursue above recommendation first and foremost.

Not Air Force, did a quick Google search: https://www.socom.mil/socpac/Documents/Reserve Documents/2021 Docs/AFI 36-2110 - Total Force Assignments (Jul 2020).pdf

Sections 4.4 and 5.5 germane.

Big DOD instruction is DODI 1315.18: https://www.esd.whs.mil/Portals/54/Documents/DD/issuances/dodi/131518p.pdf

I do find it very odd that your CoC doesn't know what a TOS waiver is. Maybe give them some excerpts from these and it'll jog their memory?

I was told by my supervisors that once I submit my packet, that’s when I’ll get the waiver request.
