My friend has his P status (he's infantry) from SPC to SGT and he just signed his papers to reclass to 25S (he doesn't leave for AIT till February) and the Schools NCO is telling him he can't get a slot because doesn't meet 25S requirements. Is this true and if is there something he can reference like an AR?

That's not a thing. His current MOS is 11B, not 25S. There's no guarantee he'll even be a 25S. Ask him to reference something instead of making up rules.

Thanks, he is. He feels he’s getting the runaround.

PVT(P) Aaron M. M. Bryant by "him" I meant the schools NCO who's telling your friend some made up rule. Your friend is completely in the right and the schools guy is applying a policy that doesn't exist

PVT(P) Aaron M. M. Bryant of course, your friend should also be aware that if he goes to BLC and pins prior to going to AIT, he may lose his Reclass seat. It's right in AR 601-280 Table E3. He had to sign a statement acknowledging that he read it. One of the things it states is that if his rank changes prior to attending school he may lose his class seat.

Sure, he has a 1SG and a CSM he has an open door policy with as well! Never assume a schools NCO knows their way around the system with a few years in the Army! Ask your Senior NCOs - that’s what they have those stripes for - guidance, mentorship and leadership!
