Our program requires certain documents in order to participate outside of the classroom, compete for scholarships/Illinois State Tuition Waiver, or to work towards earning a contract. This page contains the necessary paperwork along with instructions. Please visit the Army Publishing Directorate (APD) website for additional forms, publications, etc.
In addition to these forms and documents we also require:
Please contact your instructor with any questions or concerns. Please note, by law, we must keep the documents on file for a minimum of two years.
The basic enrollment documents are required for students to participate outside of the classroom (i.e. freshmen are only required to attend their Military Science class but may also want to participate in physical training, leadership labs, etc.). These forms are for liability only, there is no commitment being made by completing them. Please note, if you cannot access the forms you may need to update Adobe.
Please keep in mind that this is not a "do it yourself" project. We strongly encourage the students to work with their instructor.
Cadet Application and Enrollment Record ( CC 139R ) is the most important form when initiating the enrollment process. Students cannot be entered in to our database with out the first two pages of this form being completed.

If you are unsure of something please make note and let us know.
