Job Description

The U.S. Army Officer Candidate School (OCS) provides leadership and management training unlike any other organization in the world.  Army Officers are trained in career fields ranging from communication and personnel management to finance and logistics. Their training encourages the development of leadership and problem-solving skills that make them sought after by civilian employers.


There are 2 ways you can serve as an Officer in the Army; on Active Duty or in the Army Reserve. Active Duty is for those interested in pursuing a full-time career in the Army, while the Reserve enables you to get the most out of the Army while simultaneously pursuing a civilian career.  Whether you choose Active or Reserve, the lessons you’ll learn and the opportunities you’ll receive from OCS will only enhance your leadership and management experience in the Army and in your civilian career.  Explore the different careers you can train for that will give you the skills and strength to succeed in the Army—and in life.




Officer Candidate School provides college graduates an opportunity to become an Army Commissioned Officer in one of a variety of career fields.


Being an Officer in the U.S. Army means you're a leader, a counselor, a manager and a motivator. As an Officer, you will lead and inspire other Soldiers in all situations and adjust to environments that are always changing. Officers are problem solvers, key influencers and great planners. They are driven to achieve success on every mission. They earn a salary and benefits that rival civilian corporations.


There are a variety of Officer career fields in the Army, each of which will help you develop skills and leadership ability that will strengthen you as an individual and as a leader in your Civilian profession.  These leadership and management fields include:


  • Field Artillery
  • Armor
  • Air Defense Artillery
  • Aviation
  • Engineering
  • Infantry
  • Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear
  • Military Police
  • Signal
  • Military Intelligence
  • Transportation
  • Medical Services
  • Public Relations


Officer Candidate School is a combination of intense classroom and field training. You will receive the kind of leadership development training that is unmatched by any other program by developing your potential in the most important of ways — mentally, physically and emotionally. You will be grouped into squads where you will gain experience in all leadership roles — culminating in verbal and written feedback on your improvement. Officer Candidates will attend Basic Training, a nine-week training course where Candidates go through the process of becoming full-fledged Soldiers. Upon graduation, Officer Candidates will attend Officer Candidate School at Fort Benning, GA.  The 12 weeks and two phases of OCS can lead you to the ultimate goal: becoming an Army Officer.


The training and salary you get are only some of advantages you’ll gain as a Soldier. The Army also offers:


  • Comprehensive health care (medical and dental)
  • Generous vacation time (30 days annually)
  • Retirement Savings Plan
  • Family services and support groups
  • Special pay for special duties
  • Cash allowances to cover the cost of living


In the Active Army, you may also be eligible for:


  • Enlistment bonuses totaling up to $40,000
  • Up to $81,756 for college
  • Up to $65,000 to repay qualifying student loans
  • Up to $4,500 a year tuition assistance while serving


Applicants applying for U.S. Army Reserve OCS will serve in a U.S. Army Reserve unit for a period of six years.  In the Army Reserve, you'll have the time and freedom to put your educational benefits to good use. If you want to go to college, the Army Reserve will help pay for it. If you've already attended college, the Army Reserve will help pay off your loans.


In the Army Reserve, you could be eligible for:


  • Enlistment bonuses totaling up to $20,000
  • Up to $24,012 for college
  • Up to $20,000 to repay qualifying student loans
