Q: When will the 2016 AIM application open?
A: The online application will open February 1, 2016.
Q: How can I find out my AIM application status?
A: Please check your Bear’s Den account regularly for application status or contact your Admissions Officer.
Q: Is an interview required for the AIM Program?
A: Interviews are not available for those applying to the AIM.
Q: When should I expect to hear whether or not I was accepted to the program?
A: You should receive a letter by the first week in May.
Q: Would a pre-existing medical condition disqualify me from applying to AIM?
A: Most students are allowed to attend AIM despite medical conditions if it will not affect their ability to participate fully. Getting a medical clearance, however, does not guarantee that a student will get medical clearance for entry into the Coast Guard. All students who apply for admissions to the next incoming class must pass a medical screening done by an independent contractor approved by DoDMERB. DoDMERB will make a determination based upon your exam and medical history and will then make a recommendation to us regarding medical eligibility. For more specifics, please consult our list of common disqualifications.
Q: I missed the AIM deadline. Can I still apply to this year's program?
A: If you would like more information on other visit programs we offer at the Coast Guard Academy please check our website.
Q: I would like to change the week I selected for AIM. Is that possible?
A: We assigned students to the weeks they indicated they on their initial application. If we can accommodate a switch, we will contact you as soon as possible, but only after everyone has returned their forms.
Q: Does attending the AIM summer program give applicants an advantage?
A: The advantage the AIM program affords students is a one week glimpse of the CGA. However, overall, students that attend AIM do not have an advantage.
