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.
