Graduating from Ranger School is not an automatic entry into the Ranger Regiment. Passing Ranger School allows wearing of the Ranger Tab. Most graduates return to their original unit after graduation
Many of the members of the Ranger Battalions have never been to Ranger School but rather have passed the 8 week Ranger Assessment and Selection Program. All members of the Ranger Battalions are Airborne qualified.
Airborne qualification is not a requirement to attend Ranger School.
