    How much schooling do you need to joing the coast guard as a warrent officer and can you advance on to officer from there when you get a 4 yr degree? Is it kind of like the Navy where you would be a limited duty officer? Are there any time requirments for time in grade or time in service? I almost have my Associates degree and want to get out of civilian life and into the Coast Guard. I want to be an officer as well but I do not yet have a four year degree. What should I be doing?

    well here you go- you cant join the coast guard as a warrant officer lol
    a warrant officer is an enlisted person, thats so good at their job, they make him an officer.
    so no, u cannot join the CG as a warrant officer.
    to join the coast guard as an OFFICER, youll have to go to the CG academy, or OCS, and you need a 4 year degree, and its extremely hard to get into OCS (officer canidate school) because its so competitive.
    questions?

    Well I want to join the Coast Guard ASAP. I want to be an Officer becuase I want to be a military officer and I have quite a lot of college completed so far just not a four year degree yet. So I know with a two year degree some services will let you join as a warrent officer. So I was wondering what the req's were for the USCG.

    Hi there to be a Warrant Officer in the CG you must be a prior enlisted at the E6 grade in the 50% cut off list for E7 or already be an E7 or above to put in your package and you need your Commanding Officer Recomendation like the other Gent said the CG takes its best Enlisted and makes them Warrants this usually takes yearssmilewinkgrin
