I'm new to this and trying to help my DS with some of the new Detail. He is a freshman and was awarded a Army ROTC 4 yr scholarship. He did a bunch of paperwork at orientation and took the APFT the second week of school. He passed. They had a ceremony for contracted cadets that he was not present at because of his class schedule. He asked if he needed to contract and they said he did. However, each Thursday they seem to forget. My question (s). As a freshman with a scholarship does he actually "contract" or do they call it something else? Does the process of contrating include additional forms? Does the process of contracting require the ceremony? (Like sweaing in) Of coarse my motivation is I assume his scholarhip money is held up until the eyes are dotted and the tees crossed. And I'm curious if the contracting ceremony or status is part of the equation? I was prepared to front the money for a while, I'm just concerned about the "forgetting". If someone is forgetting something that impacts his finances, then he needs to escalate it. Whom and how do you suggest? Or is everything likelty taken care of and the contract ceremoney is no big deal. Sorry for the long set up and I appreciate the advice.
