Can I apply for more than one National Cadet Activity (NCSA), even if they overlap?

You may apply for as many activities as interest you, and you are qualified to attend. When we "slot" cadets, which is move you to the "Primary" list for an activity, we try to put you into your highest preference that has an opening. If this slot has a date conflict with any other activities for which you are on the alternate list, those preferences are removed from your application. That means if your first choice has a date conflict with the activity you for which you ARE slotted, the system will remove you from your first-preference alternate list since you can't be in two places at the same time.

"What if I wasn't slotted for my first choice and it conflicts with the activity I am slotted for? Can I hold out for a chance at that activity?"
If you prefer to wait for an opening at one of the activities you were not slotted for, there is no guarantee that there will be an opening, but you may email the activity director of the event you ARE slotted for (and cc:cadets@capnhq.gov) and tell them you are not going to participate. They will remove you from their primary list and make you available for slotting in the other events for which you applied. OR, if you do not pay your initial deposit, you automatically will be unslotted from your activity on April 2, but again this action will not restore your preferences if they overlap. (The deposit deadline is April 1, unless told otherwise by activity staff.)  Remember, if the activity you want to be considered for overlaps with the one you are slotted for as a "primary," it will no longer be in your preference list. (The program knows you can't be in two places at the same time.) You will have to send an email to Cadets@capnhq.gov to request the preference be added back into your application.
