CADET PROMOTION OPPORTUNITIES
All 1st year cadets start the program as a Cadet Airman Basic.
An early promotion opportunity will be available for all cadets at the beginning of the second semester.
At the end of the school year, all Cadet Airman Basic, Cadet Airman, and Cadet Airman First Class that have successfully completed a full academic year in JROTC will automatically be promoted to the next rank.
At the end of the school year, all eligible Cadet Senior Airman and above will be eligible to test for promotion to the next rank.
A cadet may be appointed to a higher rank “on the spot” for superior performance as deemed appropriate by the SASI; these promotions are effective immediately.
- Spot promotions are extremely rare and are based on attitude, effort and overall contribution to the Cadet Corps.
- Spot promotions are limited to one permanent rank advancement.
- Depending on the timing of the spot promotion, cadets who have been spot promoted may be ineligible for promotion during the next regularly scheduled promotion cycle.
A cadet may be appointed to a higher rank as a result of being selected to hold a leadership position within the Corps. These promotions will be to the appropriate rank as determined by the leadership position the cadet is being appointed to, regardless of that cadet’s previous rank.
Cadets who have been promoted to fill a leadership position will be eligible for promotion during the next regularly scheduled promotion cycle.
