Excess Leave Program (ELP) for Law School

The Excess Leave Program (ELP) provides Air Force officers another avenue to attend law school. Through the ELP, officers are responsible for all application expenses, tuition and fees, and they do not receive pay or allowances. However, officers participating in the ELP continue to accrue time for promotion and retirement purposes, and remain eligible for other active duty benefits (i.e. medical). Enlisted members are not eligible for the ELP. The active duty service commitment (ADSC) for the ELP is four years.
