  • Attend physical training sessions (3 times per week)
  • Attend field training exercises (Once a semester)

    Note: Although not exclusively, the Cyber Corps highly values officers with a higher education in relevant Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines and majors. Learn more about entering the Army Cyber profession.
The Cyber Direct Commissioning Program allows professionals with highly specialized programming, coding, and analytical skill to be appointed as an officer. Cadets can enroll in this program either during school or upon graduation.


Graduates of programs in AU School of Computer and Cyber Sciences with a minor in Military Science will have an opportunity to receive a commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Army Cyber Command. After commissioning, you will attend the Cyber Basic Officer Leadership Course in Fort Gordon, Georgia, which is designed for newly commissioned Army Cyber Officers. You will learn about cyber operation tactics in both defense and offense. In addition, upon completing the course, you will receive certificates such as information systems security, Cisco Certified Network Associate, and many more. 

Army Cyber Training


An individual incurs no obligation to the military through application for a scholarship or initial scholarship acceptance. An obligation occurs only at the time that the military begins paying for a student’s education. 

Active duty commitment for scholarship students is four years.  You then have the choice to exit active duty and complete four years in the Army Reserves or Inactive Ready Reserves. 


US Army Cyber Command (ARCYBER) operates and defends Army networks and cyberspace against adversaries. It conducts global operations around the clock to defend the nation, with around 16,500 soldiers and civilians in four states and in five countries around the world. Cadets who graduates with a cyber degree and receive commissioning in the US Army can become a Cyber Operations Officer (17A). As the leader of the cyber mission force teams, the officers are frontline workers of US cyberspace, who are responsible to plan and execute operations against adversaries.
