									Accessions Process

      Fiscal Year 2011

 Applies to Cadets Receiving
  Their Commissioning in:

         Dec 2010
         May 2011
         Aug 2011
• A military officer must be a scholar, athlete and leader (SAL).
• We commission SALs, and only SALs. Cadets must have the “full
  package”, and be accomplished and competent in all three areas.
• Cadets compete on their own merits and accomplishments against
  over 4,000 other cadets commissioning in that same “cohort” year
  group (Oct 10 – Sep 11)
• Your Grades, LDAC Performance and APFT Scores comprise ~75%
  of your accessions score, and is how you compete for:
   – Branch
   – Post
   – Grad School
   – ADSOs
   – Branch Detailing
   – Component
       • Active Duty, National Guard, Reserves
               Terms and Topics
• ACCESSIONS – the process we use to bring cadets into the Army
  formally, and assign them to their component and their branch
• CCIMS – the database we use to input all your info and requests
• LAMS – Leader Assessment Sheet that captures all aspects of the
  mathematical OMS information
• OMS – Order of Merit Score, the result of all your academic, athletic
  and leadership scores, using the OML percentages, that is used to
  compare you against the other 4,000 cadets going thru accessions that
• OML – a one-to-last listing of cadets, based on the OMS
• DMG – Distinguished Military Graduate, designated for the top 20% of
  cadets in the nation. Usually guarantees your first branch choice
• Active Duty Cutoff Line – a defined OMS that sets the minimum scoring
  for active duty selection. Below that score, AD is not possible.
• “Dead Zone” – the area on the branch bar graph where it is impossible
  for a cadet to receive a certain branch.

            Active Duty Accession Process

1. Branch the Top 10% of the AD OML with their first basic branch choice

2. Branch by OML until up to 50% of each branch’s requirements are filled
     a. If the first branch preference is unavailable, the next available branch
        preference of the Cadet will be awarded (2nd and 3rd Choice Only)
     b. Cadet may volunteer for the Branch for ADSO program, but they won’t be
        charged until after branch filled to 50%
3. Branch remainder of the branch with an additional three-year ADSO
     a. By OML
     b. Ensuring that no more than 65% of any one branch’s allocation are filled by
        the first half of the AD OML
4. DA Board awards branches to Cadets not receiving branch via steps 1-3
     a. DA Branching Model produces initial distribution of branch assignments for
        those branches not filled to 100% with steps 1-3
           - Needs of the Army, distribute quality, Cadets Branch choices
           - Ensuring that no more than 65% of any one branch’s requirements are filled by the
             first half of the AD OML
     b.   DA branching board determines final branch assignment for
          step 4 cadets and branch detailing for all
                    FY 10 Branch Fill Rates
• The following chart displays where on the Active Duty OML, each branch filled for the
FY10 Cohort for pre-branching (Steps 1 to 3)

• Color codes show where each branch filled for this cohort:
          – To 50% of the allocation without ADSO
          – To 65% with ADSO
          – Between 65% and 100% with ADSO

• Some significant variance from last years (FY09) results
   - DA directed that all branches with the exception of “AV” have at least 10% of the
total ROTC branch requirement go to DA Branching Model. As a result allocations
available for pre-branching was reduced for some branches. This is annotated by:
                    DA Branch Allocation
                    Allocation for Pre-branching

   - DA also directed a “Pilot” Program to align academic skills to branch for “EN”.
This “Pilot” took half of the “EN” Branch allocations and made available to “degreed
Engineers” only using same branching process.
   - ROTC Allocations for “IN” and “AR” were increased from FY09: however, “FA”
allocations were proportionately less and this resulted in “FA” filling to 100%.
   - “AV” Branch had no issues filling to 100% of allocation in bottom half of
OML, as it did last year.

                  Reserve Component
                      Accession Process
Step 1 – Cadet requests USAR or National Guard
   (“Dedicated” cadets have no option)
Step 2 – Cadet secures a slot in a unit (USAR uses the
   “Request” system, NG uses the LOA system)
   a. Both of these steps are done BY THE CADET
   b. LOA in Indiana is a Conditional LOA, and INARNG
   holds an OML board for branching its officers
Step 3 – After the Branching/Component Board, Cadets
   have 30 days to secure their slot
   a. Sooner is better – slots are limited to allocations!
