The application period is June through September of each year for the class starting the following July.  EMDP2 candidates submit application packets to USU with clearance documents from their respective military service (Army, Marines, Navy, and Air Force).  After screening application packets, the best-qualified candidates are scheduled for interviews and pre-commissioning medical examinations.
