Planning Departure & Arrival

MMA sets furlough leave and return days/times in accordance with our academic calendar to best serve cadet learning. Early departures or late returns affect your cadet's class time, often interrupting key testing, and require additional MMA resources from the academic and commandant offices to accommodate his individual departure or return, including transportation, make up missed work or tests, and more.

For this reason, $300 early departure and late arrival fees are assessed to his account when appropriate – excluding excused absences. Excused absences include family bereavement, health or unexpected emergency medical issues. The commandant will review requests for excused absences.

If you cannot meet the appropriate pick-up times or need to request an extension of your cadet’s stay on campus or If you have any questions about airport travel or picking up your cadet, please contact Deputy Commandant of Transportation and Security Jeff Howard at jeff.howard@missourimilitaryacademy.com or at 573.581.1776 ext. 436.
