Enlisted-to-Officer Opportunities

Detachment 847 specializes primarily in Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC), which allows military members to separate, become full-time college students and get commissioned as officers after graduation.

However, there are other ways that active duty enlisted personnel may become officers:

  • Airman Scholarship and Commissioning Program (ASCP)
    Complete a bachelor’s degree as an Air Force ROTC cadet.
  • Professional Officer Course-Early Release Program (POC-ERP)
    Enter ROTC within two years of separation and become a full-time college student.
  • Scholarships for Outstanding Airmen (SOAR)
    Separate from active duty and become a full-time college student through ROTC.
  • Airmen Education and Commissioning Program (AECP)
    Earn a bachelor’s degree while on active duty, then attend Officer Training School.
  • Nurse Enlisted Commissioning Program (NECP)
    Earn a bachelor’s degree in nursing while on active duty.
  • Officer Training School (OTS)
    Allows those with bachelor’s degrees to complete military training to become officers.
