"Inprocessing" occurs on the last Thursday in June. That's the day that your son or daughter becomes a cadet. The appointee generally will need to arrive on Wednesday and you have the choice of bringing him/her here or sending your appointee alone, at government expense. What should you do?
This is not like other colleges where you can help move them in. Here you get to say goodbye at Doolittle Hall, our alumni house, and watch them drive away. You can do the same thing at your local airport. We estimate that about 50% of the appointees are brought by their parents. Certainly, if you can afford the time and the expense of traveling to Colorado Springs in June and then again over Labor Day weekend for Parents Weekend, go ahead and do it. If you cannot afford two trips, Parents Weekend is when you'll be able to spend the most time with your cadet.
If you bring your son or daughter for Inprocessing you can enjoy the amenities of Doolittle Hall, our alumni house. Our staff will offer you refreshments, information and even some souvenir merchandise. We seek to make this transition as comfortable for you as possible.
