Senior Leader Enlisted Commissioning Program
Senior Leader Enlisted Commissioning Program

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Senior Leader Enlisted Commissioning Program (SLECP) allows designated Air Force Senior Leaders to directly select exceptionally performing, highly-talented enlisted Airmen for commissioning. The following senior leaders are identified as selection authorities for the purposes of SLECP: SECAF, USECAF, CSAF, VCSAF, CVA, CMSAF, ACC/CC, AETC/CC, AFMC/CC, AFSPC/CC, AMC/CC, AFGSC/CC, PACAF/CC, USAFE/CC, and AFSOC/CC.

 

NOTE: AFRC/CC and NGB/CF are also selection authorities under the SLECP-A Program.

 

There are two aspects of SLECP: SLECP-O for officer training school and SLECP-A for Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC).

 

SLECP-O: This program is for candidates who currently possess a Bachelor’s Degree from an accredited institution. Initial OTS placement will be the earliest class the member is eligible to attend.

 

SLECP-A: This program is for candidates who do not yet possess a Bachelor’s Degree, but have completed at least 24 semester hours or equivalent by the end of the current SLECP nomination window, with plans to complete a Bachelor’s degree within 3 years. This program provides an opportunity for enlisted Airmen to complete their degree while on an active-duty status. Airmen must complete all degree requirements while attending an accredited school with an associated funding agreement and/or affiliated cross-town AFROTC agreement (for accountability and administrative oversight) with a tuition cap (may fluctuate based on fiscal year). After graduation, the Airman will attend OTS to earn their commission.
