Accession into AFOSI as an active-duty officer entails competitively boarded processes, which are described in the following process memorandums.
AFROTC Applicant Guidance: This board meets to screen released applicants graduating in the Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter timeframes. The above link explains the application process.
Air Force Academy (USAFA) Cadets: United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) Cadets: USAFA cadets should contact AFOSI Detachment 808, USAFA, at (719) 333-3305 for questions regarding the application process.
Initial Skills Training (IST) Eliminee Officers: boards occur for those active duty officers that have been eliminated from initial skills training (i.e., Undergraduate Pilot Training) and have received permission from the IST Board to apply for AFOSI.
Officer Training School (OTS): These boards occur after each OTS board conducted by Air Force Recruiting Service. In brief, applicants need to coordinate their packages with the local base Education Office (active duty) or Recruiting Office (civilian) and list "71S -- Special Agent" as their number one choice for a career field to be considered for AFOSI if selected by OTS.
Cross-Flow Officers: As of December 2016, AFOSI is still NOT considering active-duty officers from other Air Force specialties or uniformed services at this time. We will update this site if/when the status of this program changes.
For additional information, please see the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact Special Agent Shannon Bancroft, the Air Force Personnel Center's AFOSI Functional, at DSN 665-4457 or commercial (210) 565-4457.
