Cadet Candidates and USMAPS Instruction
Students at USMAPS are known as Cadet Candidates (often abbreviated to "CCs"); board and tuition are free and they are paid a small stipend as they are active members of the U.S.Army. The course extends over a ten-month scholastic year and aims at training the "CCs” to cope with the academic and military rigors of an army education before attending West Point the following academic year.
Cadet Candidates arrive at the Prep school in mid-July for Cadet Candidate Basic Training or CCBT, a three week program to put them in shape and provide the foundation for West Point and military instruction.
