STEP 1. REGISTER FOR AN ORIENTATION
Attending an orientation is the first step in applying for the academy. Find out everything you need to know about what Sunburst has to offer and what the application process entails. Anyone can attend, however, students must be present during the orientation in order to start an application. The orientations are currently conducted weekly, online via Zoom. Register now for our next orientation. Additionally, we will host an In-Person Orientation on the Joint Forces Training Base in Los Alamitos each month.
STEP 2. COMPLETE THE ONLINE APPLICATION
Once the student has completed the orientation and is ready to apply, you may complete the Online Application. Remember, the student must be the one that decides to apply.
STEP 3. APPLICANT INTERVIEW
Once a student has completed the Online Application, a staff member will reach out and schedule a one-on-one Zoom interview. Zoom interviews typically last up to one hour long.
STEP 4. SUBMIT YOUR SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS
Once the interview is completed and it is determined that a student is eligible to move forward in the application process an admissions representative will email you instructions to begin Step 4. This step includes submitting supporting documents that are required to validate an applicant's eligibility for the program.
STEP 5. ATTEND A ROLL CALL
Roll Calls are designed to evaluate how a student performs under direct instruction in a quasi-military style environment. We are evaluating the students motivation, attitude, and desire to attend Sunburst. Applicants must be invited to attend Roll Calls.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Applications are accepted and considered on an ongoing basis. In December, Sunburst will invite 220 qualified applicants to attend a Final Roll Call (In-person). If you do not have a completed application or have not attended Roll Call, you will not be considered for enrollment.
