The culmination of all their hard work, Graduation for the Academy is a week long series of events celebrating your Cadet’s successes and achievements.  Make your travel and housing arrangements as early as possible.  Many families bring their extended family.  The date for Graduation varies from year to year, but it is usually the Wednesday before or after the Memorial Day holiday. 

Cadets will receive as many ceremony tickets as they require for their guest.

Graduation Week for the Class of 2017, the Colonel George Bud Day Class and the 59th Graduating Class will begin on 19 May and conclude with the Graduation Ceremony at Falcon Stadium on Wednesday, 24 May 2017.

Congratulations to the Class of 2017, the Air Force Academy's 59th graduating class!
