Cadet Leadership

Promotion is awarded on the basis of merit, competence, ability, and military bearing. Cadets may receive promotions based on “time in grade” and academic performance through the rank of Private First Class (E-3).

All Non- Commissioned Officers and Commissioned Officers are promoted through a process involving demonstration of ability, knowledge of military subjects, military bearing, command presence and enthusiasm. Promotions may be made by the Commandant based on exceptional and meritorious actions of a cadet. Promotions will be reviewed and granted at each grading period.

NCOs are expected to maintain a GPA of 2.5 or better and Officers are expected to maintain GPAs at a minimum of 3.0 for O-1 (2nd Lt.) through 0-2 (1st Lt. ). Officers O-3 (Captain) and above must maintain a GPA of 3.5 or better. NCOs and officers failing to maintain the required GPA may be relieved of their duties until such time as they meet the minimum GPA standards for their rank.
