A Chief Warrant Officer 3 is a Warrant Officer in the United States Army at DoD paygrade W-3. This page describes how the Army determines who is eligible for the promotion list to Chief Warrant Officer 3.

As with CW2’s, CW3’s are appointed upon the recommendation of the Secretary of the Army to the Commander-in-Chief.

A CW2 who has continued to display the high level of technical and tactical competence that earned them that rank as well as display strong leadership and discharge their duties and responsibilities well is often recommended by superiors for service as a Chief Warrant Officer at a higher rank and level of responsibility.
