Guard, Reserve, and Civilian Information

Nomination

*** SOS does NOT play a role in the nomination process or hold slots to attend in-residence.

AFPC allocates quotas to each MAJCOM, FOA, and DRU proportional to the number of eligible officers assigned.  MAJCOMs, FOAs, or DRUs may reallocate quotas and delegate to subordinate units the responsibility of designating the most qualified officers as primary and alternate resident SOS attendees. SOS Student Services downloads the class roster from AFPC approximately 1-2 weeks from the class start date.
