2. Non-selects. Marines who were not selected refer to reference (a) chapter one. For more information and career counseling, call DSN 278-9241 or commercial (703) 784-9241 or 1-(800)-833-2320 or visit their website at www.manpower.usmc.mil. Select 'top requests' then 'Enlisted Career Counselors'. Reasons for non-selection cannot be provided by MCRC or the career counselors; however, career counselors can evaluate Marines' Official Military Personnel Files (OMPF) to help gain insight on improving their competitiveness for future boards. Marines and/or Commands who would like to receive a copy of the board statistics must send a request via email to the MCRC point of contact (POC) in paragraph 15.
3. Parent Commands of selected Marines must ensure the following:
a. All of the Marine's page 11 entries have been included in the Marine's OMPF.
b. The Marines have an adjudicated security clearance or are under the Continuous Evaluation Program (CEP) prior to attending OCS. Marines who do not have an adjudicated clearance and are not enrolled in the CEP cannot report to OCS until the clearance has been adjudicated as directed per chapter one of reference (a). An updated security clearance letter must be forwarded once the clearance is adjudicated.
c. The Marines notify their primary military occupational specialty monitors of their selections and provide the MARADMIN number which references their names as selectees. Marines selected on special duty assignments must be removed from assignment upon release of this MARADMIN.
d. The Marine's current Enlisted Active Service date exceeds the OCC 240 graduation date in reference (e).
e. The selectees are assigned a Company Grade Officer as a mentor within one week of release of this MARADMIN. The mentors will ensure they are aware of and prepared for the expectations at OCS, The Basic School (TBS), and life as a Company Grade Officer. Assistance and additional information can be found at website www.trngcmd.marines.mil. Select "Units", then "OCS" or "TBS".
f. MECEP Marines who successfully graduate OCS must provide the documents listed on the MECEP Inbound Checklist to their assigned NROTC school upon reporting. The MECEP Inbound Checklist can be found on the MCRC website at www.mcrc.marines.mil. Select "Marine Officer", then "Officer Naval/Enlisted Applicants". The MECEP Inbound Checklist is located under "General Forms".
4. POC information. Marines are directed to send the E-O Board Select POC sheet electronically to both the MCRC POC listed in paragraph 15 and the OCS POC listed in paragraph 16, within one week from release of this MARADMIN. The POC sheet can be found on the MCRC website referenced in paragraph 3f. Select "Marine Officer", then "Officer Naval/Enlisted Applicants". The E-O board select POC sheet revised Nov 20 is located under "General Forms". Marines must submit the Microsoft Word version of POC format without signatures. An update must be provided if there are any changes to the original POC sheet to include personnel changes. Marines are directed to provide all information listed on the POC sheet.
5. Selected Active Reserve (AR) Marines. Must be non-competitively augmented to the active component at the time of selection. To accomplish this, the AR select must initiate a Prior Service Enlisted Package to Manpower Enlisted Assignments (MMEA-1) via their Career Planners to coordinate the augmentation per reference (d). Once augmented, Marines are directed to provide an updated Basic Individual Record reflecting the component change to the MCRC POC.
6. Commands and Marines. Refer to reference (a) chapter one for information pertaining to status change or removal recommendations. Formal requests for declinations, removal from the programs, or OCS final attempts must be forwarded in standard naval correspondence format with justification, via the administrative endorsing chain of command through the General Officer level, to CG, MCRC. Marines are directed to forward a courtesy copy of the initial requests with parent command endorsement, electronically, to MCRC POC pending receipt of all endorsements. Deployment and command staffing are not justifications for OCS deferment. Marines are expected to attend an OCC immediately upon notification of medical qualifications by MCRC POC.
7. Medical. Marines must be determined medically qualified by BUMED for ground physicals or NAMI for aviation physicals per reference (f), before MCRC can schedule them to attend an OCC with the exception of MECEPs annotated in this MARADMIN. Both BUMED and NAMI require a minimum of 30 days to process medical documents effective upon the release of this MARADMIN, to make a determination. Marines who require additional medical documents will be contacted by the MCRC POC. Each additional submission of medical information forwarded by the Marine, will restart the 30 day process for medical determinations. Commands and Marines are not authorized to contact or forward any medical documents directly to BUMED. All updated documentation must be forwarded to the MCRC POC. Deferred Marines will be scheduled by MCRC to an OCC once a medical determination has been made by either BUMED or NAMI. Marines who sustain an injury prior to reporting to OCS must immediately contact the MCRC POC and provide supporting medical documents. Questions only pertaining to the requirements for additional medical documents as requested by BUMED or NAMI should be directed to the MCRC medical reviewers at (703) 784-9426 or firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Questions pertaining to status of BUMED or NAMI medical determinations must be directed to MCRC POC.
8. Pre-OCS information. OCS class dates are tentative and subject to change. Marines will no longer be scheduled to an OCC that aligns with a board. MCRC will determine what OCC a Marine will be scheduled to based off allocations and accession needs. Due to the constant revolving changes on COVID regulations, MCRC will provide current protocols with the notification guidance emailed to scheduled Marines. Marines who are not contacted 30 days prior to a scheduled OCC will be automatically deferred by MCRC to a future OCC. Marines who do not attend the first two OCC classes after selection will automatically be disenrolled from the program unless deferred by MCRC. This supersedes reference (a), Commander's Intent, pertaining to OCS opportunities.
a. Marines are directed to use references (e), (f), (g), and (h), and the OCS website listed in paragraph 3e for specific requirements concerning arrival information, dress codes, required gear, grooming standards, fitness reports, medical requirements, administrative requirements, physical fitness test (PFT) scoring, and fitness preparation until the release of the Winter 2022 letter. All scheduled Marines will hand carry their medical records. This supersedes the requirements in reference (h) of mailing the record.
b. Commands and Marines are directed to use the OCS website referenced in paragraph 3e and the MCRC website referenced in paragraph 3f of this MARADMIN. For the OCS website, select the "Candidates Information" to prepare for OCS, and for pertinent OCS information.
c. Reference (g) provides guidance pertaining to COVID-19, however it is subject to change. Changes will be provided in the OCC notification emails to scheduled Marines.
d. Please refer to reference (e) for a list of the 2022 OCC class dates. Once notified of scheduled OCC by MCRC, Marines are directed to submit the current version (19 July 2021) of the pre-ship checklist located on the OCS and MCRC websites, to the MCRC POC 30 days prior to the scheduled OCC report date Officers in Charge and Marines are responsible to ensure all information on pre-ship checklists are completely filled out, to include PFT, height, weight, max weight, body fat percentages, and signatures. Commands will ensure all Marines are within Marine Corps standards and have a 220 or higher PFT prior to issuing Defense Travel System orders or shipping to OCS. Marines who are not in receipt of OCS orders when completing the checklist will mark "No" for question 27 and annotate, "awaiting medical qualification and/or funding letter.
e. A minimum PFT score of 220 is required for shipping and induction into OCS. Pre-ship PFTs must be taken no earlier than 60 days and no later than 30 days of scheduled OCC report date. Ensure information is annotated in the PFT portion of the checklist. Below are the additional PFT event requirements for males and females.
(1) Pull ups minimum is 8 reps
(2) Push ups minimum is 62 reps
(3) Crunches minimum is 70 reps

DO NOT send checklists to the OCS POC in paragraph 16.
f. All "yes" answers to questions 5 through 10 on the checklist that have not been previously disclosed or waived by MCRC prior to selection must include the signed applicable forms and signed detailed handwritten statements explaining events, to include supporting documents per reference (d).
9. Funding. MECEP and ECP Marines, notified of attendance to an OCC by MCRC POC, will be provided a funding letter along with additional guidance. Scheduled Marines must forward funding letter to their parent commands for issuance of Temporary Additional Duty orders to attend OCS. Questions concerning funding should be directed to the email located in the funding letter or the Marine's DTS administrators, not MCRC. AR Marines must submit an updated copy of their basic individual record to verify their component changes before a funding letter can be provided to them. RECP and MCP-R Marines notified of attendance to an OCC must contact Reserve Affairs (RAM-1) at commercial (703) 784-9136 or email at RAMfirstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for orders-writing instructions. Within one week of receiving funding letters, all scheduled Marines are directed to forward their intended mode of transportation to OCS by responding electronically with choice a, b, or c to the MCRC POC, regardless of the status of their orders:
a. "privately owned vehicle" (POV) or
b. "drop off (annotate OCS or airport)", or

10. Additional information.
a. Marines are considered officer candidates while attending OCS, and are entitled to pay and allowances commensurate with the enlisted grade shown on the original orders to OCS, but not less than that prescribed for a sergeant. Upon completion of training at OCS, the original pay and allowances for corporals and below will be restored.
b. Officer candidates who are dropped or otherwise do not successfully graduate OCS will return to their parent commands or directed duty stations. MCRC POC will provide official notification of drop reason with next course of action upon receipt of official drop package from OCS. Do not contact MCRC until after receipt of official correspondence. If dropped due to medical, contact your Primary Care Manager to be evaluated for the medical drop reason provided to you by OCS and begin documenting the medical process. Official correspondence will provide guidance that is required for resubmission to MCRC to forward to BUMED. A complete physical is not required. Only medical documentation pertaining to the injury or medical condition, from onset to full duty, need to be provided for a BUMED determination.
c. Officer candidates are required to participate in training for a minimum period of four weeks, before any voluntary request for disenrollment will be considered. The Commanding Officer (CO), OCS, is authorized to effect involuntary disenrollment for cause during any phase of the training. The CO, OCS, can recommend an OCS class outside the authorized 10-week class for E-O applicants who are dropped from OCS however, CG MCRC, is the final adjudicating official.
11. Prior to departing OCS, officer candidates must ensure that they obtain their medical records and record books (if applicable).
12. Post OCS graduation. After graduation from OCS, Marines will report back to their parent commands or directed duty stations. All claims for travel reimbursements must be completed within five days upon return to parent commands or directed duty stations. ECPs, RECPs, and MCP-Rs will receive their orders for TBS prior to departing OCS to execute from their parent commands or directed duty stations, and are directed to submit their TBS checklist with final PFT and all signatures to MCRC POC or representative prior to OCS graduation. Upon verification of graduation from OCS and receipt of a NROTC-affiliated school acceptance letter with directed semester or quarter start outlined in reference (d), the MCRC POC will request via Manpower Enlisted Assignments (MMEA) Permanent Change of Station (PCS) or Permanent Change of Assignment (PCA) orders for MECEPs. Marines who receive acceptance letters close to the end of the fiscal year or in the event of a government shutdown may experience a delay in orders due to funding restrictions. Upon submission of a school acceptance letter, MECEPs will receive PCS or PCA orders to the NROTC-affiliated schools as directed. Orders will not be requested if the timeframe from receipt of acceptance letter to MCRC and the NROTC-affiliated school no later than date provided at OCS by MCRC POC is not a least 60 days, or if the acceptance letter is not signed by the admission office. Some web versions of acceptance letters are acceptable. Formal requests to attend school outside of directed semester starts per reference (d) are not authorized except for PCA moves or extenuating medical circumstances. Supporting medical documentation must be submitted for review and approval. MECEPs are not authorized to initiate any PCS or PCA moves prior to being issued orders. MECEPs refer to references (a) and (i), for obligated service and pertinent information and ensure the Special Officer Program RELM type is used. Questions pertaining to re-enlistments/extensions per reference (i) should be directed to MMEA-1 at DSN 378-9235 or (703) 784-9235. Enlistment/Reenlistment must be approved prior to executing PCS/PCA orders. MECEPs whose enlistment/reenlistments have not been approved and have a limited timeline to execute orders, please contact the MCRC POC for assistance. MECEPs are directed to contact the Marine Officer Instructor or Assistant Marine Officer Instructor at their prospective NROTC-affiliated schools listed at website www.netc.navy.mil/NROTC for introductions and other pertinent information. MECEPs are not authorized to attend any school not listed under NROTC schools or that annotate Registered Nurse (RN) option only or Navy option only on the above website. The University of Hawaii is currently a Navy option only though not annotated on the NROTC website. MECEPs are not authorized to attend graduate schools. MECEPs are not authorized PCS moves from their original college or universities without prior approval from MCRC. Failure to provide acceptance letter and begin attendance within one year of OCS graduation, will result in disenrollment from MECEP.
13. Post TBS information. The Commandant's Education Board, which selects Marine Officers to attend graduate schools between the grades of first lieutenant and major, requires Marines to have qualifying calculus and science classes for selection to certain Postgraduate School, Air Force Institute of Technology, and Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) programs (e.g. Naval Fellowships). For this reason, MECEP students are highly encouraged to pursue degrees within Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) curriculums in order to qualify for these graduate education and fellowship opportunities. Marines who pursue non-STEM degrees are likewise encouraged to take calculus I and II and calculus-based science classes to qualify for selection to these programs in the future.
