DBIDS

 Base Access

How to get access on base for Incoming Freshmen and New Students.

 

All parents of students for AAHS will need to get a DBIDS card to have access to the Air Force Academy.  You will need to go to Pass and Registration (located on the right side of the road, just before you get to the South gate entrance on Academy Blvd) this is the glass building with a large flagpole in the front.  You will need to park at the back of the building and go into the office with the below documents.  Pass and Registration will run a quick background check and they take a picture of you for your DBIDS Card.

·         Car registration

·         Driver's license

·         Proof of car insurance.

·         M, F: 9:00AM-4:15PM

·         T, W, TH: 7:30AM-4: 15 PM

·         Closed all Federal Holidays

Your DBIDS card allows you entry onto the base; it also allows you to bring your student and their siblings onto the base.   Your DBIDS does not allow you to bring guests to the Air Force Academy.  You may enter the Air Force Academy through either North or South gate with a DBIDS card.  

All school events are on a master calendar and guests may enter the Air Force Academy through the south gate.  You will not need a DBIDS card to access the base for school events; all you need is a current driver's license. 

 You will need to get your DBIDS card before the first day of school to be able to get on base.  Please give yourself ample time when you go to get your DBIDS card, it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on how busy they are. 

If you have any questions, please call AAHS at 719-234-2401.

 How do I renew my DBIDS Card?

Parents, please check your DBIDS card for expiration dates. If you are 30 days from expiring, you will need to go back to Pass and Registration and get a new DBIDS.  Please see the list above of what you will need to bring with you.

 How do I get other family members a DBIDS?

If you'll need base access for anyone other than the enrolled students' parents/guardians, please call 719-234-2401 to get those family members added to the DBIDS list. Before calling, be sure to add the person you're requesting access to be listed as an Emergency Contact in your student's Infinite Campus account under the Extended Parent Portal.

 Base Passes and DBIDS cards are only issued to parties over the age of 18. They cannot be issued to anyone under 18 years old. 


 

​North Gate Entrance

We recently learned that effective immediately, USAFA will be refusing entrance to the base via the North Gate. All parents, staff and students, even those with current DBIDS cards, will need to enter through the South Gate. The only exception will be if there is a school event on the north side of the base. 

Thank you for your understanding.
