2. Selectees with missing documents have 15 business days from the date of this MARADMIN to turn in any missing documents to the POC in paragraph 15. Please contact MCRC POC for missing items. It is suggested to use DoD SAFE to turn in missing documents. DoD SAFE accepts larger files and provides pickup information provided the sender checks the box “Send me an email when each recipient picks up the files”. The sender should also check their DoD SAFE outbox for file delivery and pickup information. Failure to provide the missing documents in the allotted timeframe will result in disenrollment from the selected program and reapplication to a future board will be required.
3. 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. Recommend all qualified Marines reapply for future boards if not selected. Dated endorsements and interview board reports must be completed for each board and all forms must be dated within one year of board convening date.
4. Parent Commands of selected Marines must ensure the following:
a. The selectees shall be assigned a Company Grade Officer as a mentor within 5 business days of release of this MARADMIN. The mentors will ensure mentees 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".
b. The Marines must notify their primary military occupational specialty monitors of their selections and provide the MARADMIN number which references their names as selectees. Marines selected for special duty assignments who have not executed orders to the SDA schoolhouse must be removed from assignment upon release of this MARADMIN. Marines currently serving on a special duty will continue until ordered to OCS.
c. All the Marine's page 11 entries have been included in the Marine's OMPF.
d. 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 as directed per chapter one of reference (a). An updated security clearance letter must be forwarded once the clearance is adjudicated or enrolled in CEP. The letter can be found under general forms on the MCRC website at www.mcrc.marines.mil. Select "Marine-Officer" then "Naval and Enlisted Programs".
e. All commands shall ensure their selectees have at least 12 months until End of Active Service (EAS) as of the date of this MARADMIN. Otherwise, it is the responsibility of the command to execute a local extension to cover this timeframe. No Marine shall be issued orders to OCS with fewer than 12 months of Active Duty remaining as of the effective date of this MARADMIN.
f. Ensure Marines listed in paragraph 1 under “Selects with missing documents” turn in requested documentation by the deadline.
5. POC information. Marines are directed to send the E-O POC sheet electronically to the MCRC POC listed in paragraph 15, within one week from release of this MARADMIN. The POC sheet can be found on the MCRC website referenced in paragraph 4d. The E-O POC sheet revised Oct 23 is located under "General Forms". Marines must submit the Microsoft Word version of POC format. 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.
6. 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 (PSEP) via a canvassing recruiter to Marine Corps Recruiting Command to coordinate the augmentation per reference (d). Upon selection, Marines will be contacted via email by the Prior Service Enlistment Program Chief for further amplifying guidance on the PSEP package submission. Once augmented, Marines are directed to provide an updated Basic Individual Record reflecting the component change to the MCRC POC.
7. Removal and Declinations. Formal requests 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. The initial request must be forwarded with first endorsement as a courtesy to MCRC POC. Upon receipt of all endorsements, the MCRC POC will route the request to CG, MCRC for approval.
8. Medical. Marines (except for MECEP unless previously medically dropped from OCS) must be determined medically qualified by BUMED for ground physicals or NAMI for aviation physicals per reference (f), before MCRC will schedule them to attend an OCC. 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 at BUMED and NAMI. Commands and Marines are not authorized to contact or forward any medical documents directly to BUMED or MCRC Medical Reviewers. All updated documentation must be forwarded to the MCRC POC for tracking purposes. 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 to include light duty chit. Questions only pertaining to the requirements for additional medical documents as requested by BUMED or NAMI should be directed to the MCRC medical reviewer at (703) 784-9426 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions pertaining to status of BUMED or NAMI medical determinations must be directed to MCRC POC.
9. Pre-OCS information. OCS class dates are tentative and subject to change. Every effort will be made to schedule Marines to the OCS class immediately following a selection board however this is not guaranteed. MCRC will determine which OCC a Marine will be scheduled to attend once medically qualified and utilizing allocations and the accession needs of the Marine Corps. Refer to reference (e) for OCC report and graduation dates. Marines may be contacted up to two weeks prior to an OCC class and be afforded the opportunity to attend if extra allocations are made available. Marines who do not attend the first two assigned OCC classes after selection will automatically be disenrolled from the program. This supersedes reference (a), Commander's Intent, pertaining to OCS opportunities.
a. Marines are directed to use reference (g) and the OCS website listed in paragraph 4a, for specific requirements concerning physical fitness, arrival information, dress codes, required gear, grooming standards, fitness reports, medical requirements, and administrative requirements prior to arriving to OCS until the Winter 2024 guidance is released. Marines notified of OCC attendance will be provided other OCS pertinent information. It is imperative for candidates to utilize reference (g) vice previous versions, as these letters and forms change for each class. All scheduled Marines will hand carry a copy of their medical record. This supersedes the requirements in reference (g) of mailing the record. Refer to the medical checklist provided upon email notification of attendance to create a skeleton medical record.
b. Refer to reference (e) for a list of the 2024 OCC class dates. Once notified of scheduled OCC by MCRC, Marines are directed to submit pre-ship checklists within 5 business days. The current version of the pre-ship checklist dated 12 July 2023 will be provided by MCRC in email notification. Officers in Charge and Marines are responsible to ensure all information on the pre-ship checklist is filled out, and it is signed and dated. Commands will ensure all Marines are within Marine Corps standards and have a first class 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 20 and annotate "awaiting funding letter".
c. A first class PFT is required for shipping to 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 PFT event requirements for males and females.
(1) Pull-up minimum is 8 reps
(2) Push-up minimum is 62 reps
(3) Plank minimum is 1 min 10 secs
(4) 3 mile run maximum is 24 mins
(1) Pull-up minimum is by age as listed below:
(a) 17-20 - 1
(b) 21-25 - 3
(c) 26-30 - 4
(d) 31+ - 3
(2) Push-up minimum is 34 reps
(3) Plank minimum is 1 min 10 secs
(4) 3 mile run maximum is 27 mins Commands must ensure Marines' PFT information is within the above requirements prior to submission of the checklist. Marines who do not meet the above requirements are not eligible to report to the scheduled OCC, and this will count as one attempt. If this is the second attempt to attend OCS, the Marine will be disenrolled from their respective programs. DO NOT send checklists to the OCS POC in paragraph 16.
d. All "yes" answers to questions 4 through 7 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).
10. 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 the 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 change 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) at commercial (703) 784-9136 for orders-writing instructions. Within 5 business days of receiving funding letters, all scheduled Marines are directed to forward their intended mode of transportation to OCS on the report date 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
c. "Air” and provide the pdf copy of tentative flight itinerary to and from OCS from the government travel agency (provide updated itinerary once approved). Once orders are Training and Education Command (TECOM) approved, scheduled Marines are required to provide to the MCRC POC five business days prior to the report date one of the following:
d. Marines on non-local funded travel (over 50 miles) must provide a copy of approved DTS or DD Form 1610 orders with the TECOM line of accounting in accounting classification or
e. Marines on local non-funded travel (50 miles or less) must provide command endorsed orders.
f. All information identified in above sub-paragraphs a through e must be received by MCRC POC within established deadlines prior to reporting to OCS. Failure to provide the above information can result in removal from the scheduled OCS class and possible disenrollment from respective programs.
11. 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 from or otherwise do not successfully graduate OCS will return to their parent commands or directed duty stations. All drops are conditionally retained in their respective programs unless it is the second unsuccessful attempt or the Marine is not recommended to return to OCS. MCRC POC will provide official notification of retained Marines 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 PCM 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 or to be rescheduled for an OCC. 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.
c. Prior service candidates who are disenrolled by the Commanding Officer (CO), OCS for unsatisfactory conduct or because of a Drop on Own Request will receive a “not observed” adverse report in accordance with Marine Corps Order 1610.7F Chapter 5, paragraph 3. d. (6), “Comments pertaining to the Marine Reported On (MRO)’s drop from, or failure at, a school because of the MRO’s unwillingness to try, cavalier attitude, or unprofessional conduct or ability to meet required standards are adverse”. The 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.
12. Prior to departing OCS, officer candidates must ensure that they obtain their medical records and record books (if applicable).
13. Post OCS graduation.
a. 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 business 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 a TBS checklist with final OCS PFT and all signatures to MCRC POC or representative prior to OCS graduation.
b. Upon verification of graduation from OCS, and receipt of a NROTC Unit acceptance letter with NROTC-affiliated school acceptance letter annotating a semester or quarter start, as outlined in reference (d), the MCRC POC will request Manpower Enlisted Assignments (MMEA) issue Permanent Change of Station (PCS) or Permanent Change of Assignment (PCA) orders for MECEPs. MECEPs who submit the two letters close to the end of the fiscal year, in the event of a government shutdown, or incorrect status codes may experience a delay in orders due to funding restrictions or code corrections.
c. Due to student seat availability at the NROTC Units, MECEP Marines must apply to three separate NROTC-affiliated schools. If the unit has availability, the Marine can apply to the college/university. NROTC-affiliated schools can be found at https:(slash)(slash)www.netc.navy.mil/Commands/Naval-Service-Training-Command/NROTC/Navy-ROTC-Schools/. Both the NROTC unit and the NROTC-affiliated school must provide the Marine with an acceptance letter with the start semester in the verbiage. The NROTC unit’s no later than report date should also be included to aid Manpower when drafting PCS/PCA orders.
d. Upon submission of both letters, MECEPs will receive PCS or PCA orders to the NROTC-affiliated school as directed. Orders will not be requested if both letters are not received and is less than 30 days of the NROTC unit’s no later than date. Some web versions of NROTC-affiliated school acceptance letters are acceptable. Formal requests to attend the NROTC-affiliated 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 by MCRC.
e. MECEPs are not authorized to initiate any PCS or PCA moves prior to being issued orders.
f. MECEPs refer to references (a), (h), 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 references (h) and (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 (less than 2 weeks to report date), please contact the MCRC POC for assistance.
g. MECEPs are directed to contact the Marine Officer Instructor or Assistant Marine Officer Instructor at their prospective NROTC-affiliated school for introductions and other pertinent information.
h. 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.
i. MECEPs are not authorized to attend graduate schools.
j. MECEPs are not authorized PCS moves from their original NROTC-affiliated school without prior approval from MCRC.
k. Failure to provide NROTC unit and NROTC-affiliated school acceptance letter and begin attendance within one year of OCS graduation, will result in disenrollment from the program.
l. MECEP Marines who successfully graduate OCS must provide the documents listed on the MECEP Inbound Checklist to their assigned NROTC-affiliated school upon reporting. The MECEP Inbound Checklist can be found on the MCRC website listed in paragraph 4d under "General Forms".
m. MECEP Marines must maintain a first class PFT and CFT for the entirety of their time in the program.
14. 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. Refer to reference (j) for more information.
