LEARN TO LEAD AS A MARINE OFFICER.
The Marine Corps is seeking high performing, elite individuals with a desire to serve a greater purpose than themselves to become Marine Officers.
- Upstanding, competitive & physically fit individuals between 18 and 28 years of age.
- Must be a U.S. Citizen.
- Currently enrolled full time (12 credits or more), or have graduated from an accredited, four-year college or university. Students in two-year colleges can sign a letter of intent to later transfer to a four-year university.
- Cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher
- Must meet Marine Corps Height/Weight Standards
- Must be Physically and Medically qualified to join the Marine Corps
- Must be mentally qualified (e.g. meet at least one of the following)
- SAT Score of 1000 or higher (Math & Critical Reading)
- Composite ACT Score of 22 or higher
- AFQT Score of 74 or higher on the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB). This is the method for students lacking the required ACT/SAT Score. (i.e. you can still be eligible, regardless of ACT/SAT...just adds one more step)
Active Duty Marine Officers commit to 4 years of active duty service, which is comprised of nearly a year of the most advanced leadership and warfighting training the United States military has to offer, followed by a 3 year stint in the Fleet Marine Force.
Significant benefits are included and compensation is competitive with the private sector.
Earning the title Marine Officer is reserved for those few who are willing to challenge their body, mind, and spirit in service of a higher calling; the opportunity to lead Marines in defense of this great nation. Adventure awaits those who are willing to take the first steps.
Reserve options are available for those individuals who wish to earn the title Marine Officer, and serve in a limited capacity in their home state while still challenging themselves through the training pipeline which is the same for all candidates.
