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.
