INTRASERVICE: A joint service agreement allows servicemembers who are selected for this program to be discharged from their service and enlisted in the Army. Applicants must apply for this program while on active duty and must have 12 months or more remaining on their enlistment contract.
NON-PRIOR SERVICE AND CIVILIANS: Contact local Army recruiter. Applications are forwarded from the individual, through the local Non-Prior Service (NPS) recruiting Battalion, to United States Army Recruiting Command (USAREC). After screening, the application is forwarded to the appropriate proponent who evaluates the applicants' technical experience and determines if the applicant is qualified to compete against other qualified applicants for the limited warrant officer positions. Applications from those who are not technically qualified will be returned to the applicant without further processing. Further requirements for Non-Army personnel are listed below under "Additional Requirements For Non-Army Personnel".
A selection board will consider fully qualified applications. Selection is highly competitive and board members select applicants based upon the whole person concept. Leadership and technical abilities will be evaluated and only the best qualified will be selected.
DD 368 - CONDITIONAL RELEASE FORM: SMs will obtain an approved DD 368 through their Servicing Personnel Office.

Clarification for sister service officers as mentioned above: if selected by the board, HRC will consider officers with an approved and valid conditional release and/or separation orders or DD214s as separated AT THE TIME OF APPOINTMENT for Initial Warrant Officer Appointment.  The new appointment would be based upon the USAREC in-Service WO board selection AND subsequent receipt of Confirmed Appointment Scroll.  The scroll may take more than six months to process and HRC Officer Accessions Branch works closely with applicant for any issues with the scrolling process. Rank for sister service officers as mentioned above: Non-Aviation Officers assessing for 153A Warrant Officer Aviator selection: IAW AD 2021-31, the automatic promotion to CW2 based on Federal Commissioned Service no longer applies.  Selected officers will receive an appointment to WO1 with an Active Date of Rank Reset at completion of flight school, and promotion to CW2 two-years after completing flight school.
