ARMY ROTC Fort Campbell’s Green-to-Gold Representative

2 Purpose To provide an overview of Army ROTC’s Green-to-Gold Program and allow you to make a better informed decision

3 What is Green-to-Gold The Green-to-Gold program is a Cadet Command Program designed to provide exceptional enlisted Soldiers an opportunity to become Army officers by completing a college degree. It is an opportunity provided by the US Army and a privilege bestowed upon you by your chain of command; it is not a right.

23 Questions At this point, one of the top questions you’ll field not answered by the slides is: what is the difference between G2G and OCS? Bottom line is G2G is a way for Soldiers who have 2 years of college completed toward their degree or less a way to complete their degree and commission. OCS is for those Soldiers who have 3 or more years of college completed toward their degree or already have a Bachelor’s.
