Officer dating enlisted
If they did a four year contract while enlisted, then went to university for four years, and obtained a commission, then it could be possible. It's covered under the fraternisation policy in Article 134, Paragraph 60, of the Uniformed Code of Military Justice. If you are in any other branch, you might be able to.
If the officer you want to date is in your unit or whatever then no because that is fraternisation but if you two are in different units, you can.
However, some exceptions to the prohibitions exist, and fraternization between certain groups is considered acceptable.
These divisions include general officers, field grade officers, company grade officers (including warrant officers), staff non-commissioned officers and junior officers.
In addition to cases of relationships between soldiers of different ranks, fraternization between trainees and soldiers or between recruiters and recruits is also prohibited.
When dating takes place between soldiers of the same rank or between a solider and a civilian employee or government contractor, military regulations only prohibit those relationships which directly affect morale, discipline, respect for authority or otherwise interfere with a mission.
The Marine Corps is much less lenient on the charge, partially because of the smaller number of individuals involved. If they enlisted with a degree, were assigned to a unit, then sent to OCS, they'd certainly not return to that unit.

The guidelines regarding dating vary depending upon rank, but apply regardless of gender or direct lines of command. Military regulations chiefly regulate against dating between two soldiers of different ranks. Military policy in all branches prohibits all kinds of fraternization between soldiers of different grades; while the prohibited relationship is officer/enlisted solider, it also applies to any two different grades of soldier.
Whether or not they are in a direct line of command is immaterial.
Fraternization falls under Article 134 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
