What are the requirements to becoming an Officer?

I was under the impression that if you have a 4 year degree, you can apply for officer school? Or are you automaticly an officer?

I have a friend who works at a community college and he needs the info...

You might automatically get E-4 (Specialist) but you won't be an officer unless you apply for OCS.

Half way towards your degree, you can apply to OCS and go through training every summer. Once you have completed your 4 year degree requirement you can then be sworn in and go to the basic. At least that's the way we did it in the Marines. You must also be a US Citizen before you can even apply for your commision (this is not a requirement for enlisted men). I know of some officers who were enlisted before they finished their college education (we call them mustang officers), those men are highly respected by in the enlisted ranks.
