Any student enrolled in an AFJROTC academic class is considered an Active Cadet. If a student has a legitimate scheduling conflict that prevents them from being enrolled in an AFJROTC academic class, that student may be classified as a Reserve Cadet.
To be eligible for reserve status, a student must have been a cadet for at least one FULL academic year prior to being considered for reserve status.
A reserve cadet must comply will all standards published in this Cadet Guide, applicable Air Force and Air Force JROTC Instructions, and unit operating instructions. Failure to do so will result in the loss of reserve status.
Like an active cadet, a reserve cadet MUST wear their issued Air Force blue uniform on ALL designated uniform wear days. If purchased by the cadet, ABU’s may be worn on in lieu of the Air Force blue uniform on Warrior Wednesday.
On designated uniform wear days, a reserve cadet will report to the SASI before or after school for a uniform inspection.
Failure to wear the uniform in accordance with these instructions and Air Force uniform wear standards and/or failure to report for uniform inspection will result in the loss of reserve status.
All reserve cadets are eligible and encouraged to participate in all AFJROTC activities (community service, drill team, honor guard, etc.).
Time in reserve status will not be included in a cadet’s final Certificate of Completion.
