About the Program

The Aggie Eagle Program (AEP) offers high school juniors and seniors in scouting a first-hand experience with the Corps of Cadets. While at AEP, scouts will:

  • Meet current cadets and learn about their experiences in the Corps
  • Stay in the Corps dorms on campus
  • Meet Eagle Scouts in the Corps and from other high schools
  • Learn about the university admissions process, financial aid, scholarships and academic support
  • In the Fall, march in to Kyle Field with the Corps before a football game
  • Attend a football game in the fall (subject to game time and ticket availability), and attend Aggieland Saturday in the spring
  • Attend the commandant’s motivational presentation
  • Additional Corps scholarship consideration is given for participants

Dates and Schedule

AEP is offered once during the fall and spring semesters. Check-in for the AEP is at the Sanders Corps of Cadets Center from 1:30 – 2:15 p.m. on Friday. The program concludes Saturday at the Corps Center immediately after the football game in the fall, and at noon on Saturday in the spring. A final schedule will be published before the event

Apply to the Aggie Eagle Program

Academically qualified scouts can apply online. The AEP costs a non-refundable $35 per student. Your application is not complete until we receive your required forms and payment. Due to a limited number of spots, prompt return of the forms is encouraged.

AEP participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from the Sanders Corps of Cadets Center. The nearest airport is the Easterwood Airport in College Station (CLL). Ground Shuttle services (www.groundshuttle.com) provides reliable transportation from both Houston airports Bush (IAH) – 90 miles & Hobby (HOU) – 105 miles and Austin-Bergstrom (AUS) – 105 miles.

Parents are welcome to attend the parent’s informational meeting and the commandant’s presentation, both Friday afternoon. Students will be housed on campus with an Aggie Cadet sponsor but parents should make their own arrangements for accommodations. Hotels in Bryan & College Station may fill up during football weekends, parents should make reservations as soon as possible.
