    A question about OCS and college

    I know that by having a college degree you can go into the military as an officer, and that you have to have a degree in order to be a fighter pilot.
    However if I was to go to OCS then could I be eligible to be a fighter pilot without having to go through college.

    Another question I have is that if a go to college before joining the military then can I still get some money to pay of college debt.

    I would appreciate any help I can get.

    I don't know about the other services, but for Air Force OTS, you need a degree.

    Thanks, that answered my first question.
     My second question was if I went to college and got a degree then joined the Air Force, could I get some money to help pay off college debt. I ask this because I have heard that if someone joins the military first, then they can get some money to pay for college.
    I don't want this to be taken wrong; I'm not wanting to join the military just to pay for college. I have really wanted to join the military for several years now, even if it meant enlisting, but I was told by someone who enlisted in the Army that it would be far better to go into the military as an officer. Plus I am still considering trying to be a fighter pilot because I love flying. I am planing on going to college primarily because I think it would beneficial to me in the military. I am still not sure what I want to get a degree in, I am thinking something along the lines of aerospace engineering; but I am only 16 yrs. old so I guess I have some time to think about it.

    Thanks again for your help!

    I really don't know that much about OTS.  I would call someone working as an officer recruiter (not the standard recruiter) or OTS.
