About the Program

The Aggie Eagle Program (AEP) offers high school juniors and seniors and transfer students who are Eagle Scouts, Trail Life USA Freedom Award, Girl Scout Gold Award, Camp Fire Wohelo Award, or American Heritage Girls Stars and Stripes Award recipients a first-hand experience with the Corps of Cadets. While at AEP, students 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
  • Attend an A&M sporting event – football in the fall or basketball/baseball in the spring (subject to scheduling and ticket availability)
  • Attend a recognition ceremony
  • Additional Corps scholarship consideration is given for participants

Dates and Schedule

AEP is currently being offered on Feb 8-9, 2019. AEP is offered once in the fall semester and once in the spring semester. Check-in for the AEP is at the Sanders Corps of Cadets Center from 1:30 – 2:15 p.m. on Friday. A detailed schedule will be released after the start time of the sporting event is confirmed.

Registration and Transportation

Very qualified Venture, Explorer, Sea Scouts as well as those scouts who are very close to completing their Gold / Eagle Scout / Stars and Stripes awards will be considered for attendance. A confirmation packet will then be mailed to you with the required forms. Your registration is not complete until we receive your required forms by fax or email. Due to a limited number of spots, prompt return of the forms is encouraged.

We are unable to provide transportation to and from the Bryan Bus Station or the College Station airport (CLL), Easterwood Field, but taxis are available. A commercial shuttle service from Houston Intercontinental and Houston Hobby Airports to College Station is available (GroundShuttle.com), but you will need to make arrangements to be dropped off and picked up at the TAMU Corps of Cadets Center.

Parents

Parents are welcome to attend portions of the program. An information session is held on Friday afternoon and parents are invited to join their students at the recognition ceremony on Friday evening. Students will be housed on campus but parents will need to arrange their own accommodations. Hotels/motels in Bryan/College Station may fill up during football weekends. Parents should make reservations as soon as possible. More on possible locations can be found here.
