A lot depends on two factors.  One is where an IEP Diploma is considered the equivalent of a HS Diploma or understand is that it is not but I'm uncertain how each branch of the service would consider it.  Another factor is what necessitated the your transfer to BOCES...if this was for ADD or AD/HD you would more than likely need a waiver in order to enlist.  I recommend you contact a recruiter from each branch of the service you are considering to discuss your options.
