The International Military Student Officer is responsible for assisting international military officers and international government civilian employees with applying for admission to the Air Force Institute of Technology's (AFIT) Graduate School of Engineering and Management and AFIT's professional continuing education programs. Prospective international military officers apply for AFIT through their country's Training Command via the United States Security Assistance Office (SAO) at the United States (US) Embassy in their home country.
Application packages for evaluation should arrive at the International Military Student Office no later than 30 April of each year in preparation for entrance the following September. Application packages must include the following documents:
Applications for any master's degree program will be considered by the Graduate School of Engineering and Management if GRE scores are less than the scores published above or are not available; however, the applicant's academic record and TOEFL scores must be exceptionally strong. In addition, the academic departments reserve the right to ask for the GRE test prior to making an admission decision. Thus, if the applicant chooses to submit an application without a GRE, the package should be submitted no later than 1 March in the year of the desired program start date. Exact program lengths are dependent upon the applicant's qualifications, and final decision for acceptance into any program and the required program length resides with the individual departments.
To support the application process and help with the admission decision, we recommend submitting the following documents as well:
In addition to submitting all the above documents, doctoral applicants must provide a clear and concise statement describing the area in which he or she intends to concentrate his or her studies. Doctoral and IDE students cannot be admitted without GRE scores; however, those scores are waiverable, and lower scores will not automatically disqualify any applicant.
AFIT's International Military Student Officer is Mr. Michael Paprocki. He is an experienced professional in the fields of International Affairs, management, and admissions and can advise the SAO and the applicants of the Graduate School's requirements.
