Marine Corps Enlisted Commissioning Education Program (MECEP) MECEP provides selected enlisted Marines with the opportunity to earn a baccalaureate degree by attending college or university as a full-time student. While in school, Marines continue to receive their full pay and allowances. Those individuals who successfully obtain a baccalaureate degree and complete officer candidate training are commissioned Second Lieutenants in the Marine Corps.

 

College Degree Program (CDP) The College Degree Program provides selected Marine officers the opportunity to earn a baccalaureate degree by attending an accredited college or university as a full-time student.

 

Special Education Program (SEP) The Special Education Program provides selected Marine officers the opportunity to receive advance training that will lead to a postgraduate degree in specified disciplines, as a full-time student at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS), the Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) or selected civilian schools.

 

Advanced Degree Program (ADP) The Advance Degree Program provides selected Marine officers the opportunity to earn a postgraduate degree by attending an accredited college or university as full-time students.

 

Law Education Programs (LEP) The various Law Education Programs provide Marine officers the opportunity to laterally transfer into a law MOS or to earn a Masters of Law or Juris Doctor through full-time, funded study if currently in the MOS.

 

Enlisted Commissioning Program (ECP) The ECP allows qualified enlisted Marines, currently holding a baccalaureate degree, to complete Officer Candidates School (OCS) and be commissioned as Second Lieutenants in the Marine Corps.

 

Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) Navy-Marine Corps Scholarship Program The NROTC Navy-Marine Corps Scholarship Program provides an opportunity for young men and women to prepare for careers as officers in the United States Navy or Marine Corps. The program pays full tuition and fees at any of the more than 66 colleges and universities nationwide. In addition, candidates receive a monthly allowance.

 

United States Naval Academy Each year, selected Marines begin study at the United States Naval Academy leading to a bachelor's degree and commissioning as a Marine or Naval Officer. Tuition is fully subsidized in addition to a regular salary.  Candidates who are not admitted through the admissions process will automatically be considered for (NAPS) The Naval Academy Preparatory School.

 

Staff Noncommissioned Officers Degree Completion Program This program provides selected Marine staff noncommissioned officers with the opportunity to obtain a bachelor's degree by attending college or university for no more than 18 months as a full-time student. The degree must relate to a Marine Corps billet that is specifically designed for Marine staff noncommissioned officers with four-year degrees. This does not lead to a commission.
