    when does our AD pay start? Date of graduation or report date?
    When does our stipend stop?
    Is there a gap between stipend stopping and AD pay starting?
    Thanks...

    My understanding is that AD pay starts the day you report. The stipend stops at graduation.

    The good part about this is that you are receiving credit for time in grade (as an O-3) towards promotion starting when "you have met the requirements for graduation". The bad part is that you could potentially go 45-60 days without a pay check. I was told to "plan accordingly".

    i wonder why they think we can go 45-60 days without pay?

    when do we start receiving BAH?

    Most schools graduate in late May, and you have to report mid June-ish. If you are going >30 days after your report date without pay, you should be making some big waves and your money won't be too far off. You will get BAH same as your base pay.

    Some may also need to realize that your stipend will stop early if your last rotation ends more than 45 days before graduation. Just something else to think about for people who take their vacation time at the end of the school year.
