Graduate Alumni Badge
If you had the Graduate Alumni Badge in the past and still need assistance in accessing the United States Air Force Academy, there is a way. Alumni Badges went away with many things in 2020. The replacement badge is called a DBIDs Badge. This DBIDs Badge is only necessary while USAFA sits at HPCON B during the Global Pandemic. When USAFA goes back to HPCON A, visitor cordons plan to resume as normal. Please fill out this form to request an Access Badge.

Now Accepting Nominations for the 2020 Young Alumni Excellence Award
Each spring, the Association of Graduates has the pleasure of honoring graduates who attended the United States Air Force Academy within the last 15 years with our Young Alumni Excellence Award. The award is presented based on the recipient's outstanding professional achievement and contributions to their community, whether in military or civilian life. Visit usafa.org/YoungAlumniAwards to submit a nomination.
