How Long Are My AFOQT Scores Valid?

AFOQT Scores are valid for life. If you took the former ‘S Form’ AFOQT, your scores have been converted to the updated ‘Form T’ format.

If you have already taken the AFOQT and wish to obtain your scores, you can visit the Air Force Personnel Center Website. Scores are typically uploaded about 8-10 business days after your test date. You will be required to input your social security number, last name and testing center number to view your scores.

You can also call the Air Force Personnel Center (AFPC) toll free at: (800)525-0102; COMM:(210)565-0102; DSN:665-0102.

If you are overseas, dial a toll free AT&T Direct Access Number (DAN) from the country you’re currently in, then dial (800)616-3775. Click on the following link to view the complete AT&T DAN List

As you can see, the AFOQT minimum required scores vary depending upon your desired career field. The Air Force Officer Qualifying Test (AFOQT) is divided into 12 subtests and scored according to 7 composites comprised of several combinations of said subtests. There are 5 composites that have minimum score requirements.

*Keep in mind these are MINIMUM REQUIRED scores. Selectee scores are often significantly higher. If you are unsatisfied with your scores after taking the AFOQT, weigh your options carefully. Take stock of the other components of your package (GPA, type of degree, experience, prior service, references, etc.). Remember: your most recent AFOQT score is the one that counts – even if it is lower than the initial score!

My (Tom’s) opinion: I would not consider testing a second time without 1) being 95% certain my test score was likely to prohibit my selection 2) confirming with my recruiter (and/or other person ‘in the know’) this is the most likely scenario.
