Who Are We Looking For?

The United States Air Force Academy strives to create a highly qualified and truly diverse cadet wing at the Academy each year. In addition to diversity in terms of race, ethnicity and gender, we are looking to expand our applicant pool across individual characteristics defined by our diversity definition, including:

  • Personal life experiences, including having overcome adversity by personal efforts
  • Geographic background, such as region, rural, suburban, urban
  • Socioeconomic and educational background, such as academic excellence and/or whether an individual would be a first generation college student
  • Cultural knowledge and language abilities, with particular emphasis on cultures and languages of strategic importance to the Air Force
  • Work background, including prior enlisted service
  • Physical abilities, including athletic prowess
  • Age, though applicants must be within statutory parameters for academy attendance

We take a holistic view of our applicants.  They're more than a GPA or standardized test score.  We're looking for students who have a desire to serve and seek an education that is on par with highly selective colleges and universities.   For our top diversity candidates, we offer the Falcon Visitation Experience.  This opportunity gives prospective students an opportunity to spend three days on our campus to get a first-hand look at what United States Air Force Academy life is like.  If you have students who may be a good fit for this program, please have them talk to their admissions advisor
