I have heard different answers and wondering if anyone had any official insight. To specify I am wondering if you enter the Green to Gold program to pursue a graduate degree; Do you have to finish the Masters Degree prior to commissioning? I know you have to be full time (9crh per semester) but not 100% on if it must be finished in that time since a Bachelors is the educational requirement for commissioning.

Yes you can enter for a master degree. Part of the ADO requirements if you dig into them are that you must complete your degree within 21 months

Also the goarmy web page has a list of all the requirements for this program.

Personally my recommendation is to go OCS right now, once you hit major, you'll be afforded the opportunity to complete a masters.

Finish what you started. If you entered the program to earn a Masters' degree, finish the thing before you accept the commission.

My understanding from 20 years ago was that you did not have to finish a Masters. I don't know the current policy.
