What is JCAP?

The Junior Cadet Accessions Program (JCAP) offers high school juniors and seniors who are involved in Junior ROTC, Civil Air Patrol, Young Marines and Sea Cadets a first-hand experience with the Corps of Cadets. While at JCAP, cadets will:

  • Meet current cadets and learn about their experiences in the Corps
  • Stay in the Corps dorms on campus and meet JROTC/CAP/Young Marine/Sea Cadets in the Corps and from other high schools
  • Learn about the university admissions process, financial aid, scholarships and academic support
  • Train with our national drill champions, the Fish Drill Team in the fall and watch their performance in the spring.
  • In the Fall, march 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

JCAP is offered once during the fall and spring semesters. Check-in for the JCAP 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.
