Riverside Military Academy Day Cadet

Daily Schedule

Day Cadets arrive on campus by 7:45 a.m. to sign in at the West Portal with the Chief TAC Officer before reporting for morning Opportunity Time, a study period prior to classes with access to teachers. It is mandatory for all Day Cadets to participate in afternoon GSA (General Sports & Activities) with designated Company or sport unless excused by the Commandant. Off-campus recreational sports must be approved by the Commandant. At 5:30 p.m., Day Cadets may sign out with the Chief TAC at the West Portal.

Responsibility of the Cadet

Day Cadets are required to participate in all Corps of Cadets ceremonies and closed weekend activities unless approved by the Commandant. Cadets on Academic Restriction are required to attend a mandatory weekend study hall. If your cadet earned a demerit, he will march punishment tours (1 hour per demerit) on Friday afternoon or at weekend Guard Path. Day Cadets may drive to campus and must immediately sign in their keys and phone to the TAC officer. Day Cadets must arrive and depart in the prescribed RMA uniform. They are provided a uniform storage area where the cadet uniform issue must remain with the exception of the uniform of the day to be worn at check-in. Day cadets are responsible for their own laundry.

New Cadet Orientation

During the first 30 days after enrollment, a new student is classified as a ROC (Recruit On Campus). Cadets enrolling for Fall/Spring must remain on campus four days during ROC Orientation with weekend training required through completion of the 30 day cycle to learn cadet life basics. Day Cadets will then be eligible for all rights and privileges accorded to Boarding Cadets.
