Programs & Resources

Leadership Scholar Program (LSP)



This is a partnership between universities and colleges and the U.S. Marine Corps. Its purpose is to:



  • Help honorably discharging Marines continue their education
  • Identify those Marines that might qualify to apply to institutions
  • Present these young men and women to the University Admissions
  • The partnership will ideally secure “guaranteed acceptance” for at
    least a couple of the qualified applicants at colleges & universities.

The U.S. Marine Corps has teamed with many universities to allow a good number of Marines and Sailors to be accepted directly, without competing against other applicants. The Marine Corps and Navy will send some great service members to participating universities, with both academic potential and superb leadership skills, who will make a contribution to their campus beyond just being a good student.

Eligible Active Duty Marines and Sailors with scores above 70 on the AFQT and above 115 on their GCT should call (910) 449-9748 or visit for more information.



The Joint Service Transcript (JST) documents recommended college credit for military training in a format widely accepted by colleges and universities.

The actual type and amount of credit awarded will depend on the policies of the college or universities you attend and your academic goal.

If you would like an official JST transcript sent to your college or university, please see an Education Assistance Counselor. Our office can also assist you in making corrections to your SMART transcript.

The Service Member Opportunity Colleges Marine Corps (SOCMAR) is a contract-for-degree agreement between the college and student at the Associate and Bachelor
degree levels.

In order for the contract to be fulfilled, the student must complete 25% of their degree with the college.

SOC also guarantees the transfer of courses between SOC member colleges. Agreements are available to active duty and their spouses. If a student is interested in obtaining their SOC agreement they should contact their college or university.

Apprenticeship (USMAP)

USMAP enhances your job skills and shows your motivation for more challenging military assignments. Having a DOL and NC Certificate of Completion is a definite advantage in getting a better civilian jobs since employers know the value of apprenticeships.

The program requires no off-duty hours and depending on how long you have been in the military you can be granted up to half of the required OJT hours for military experience. There is no testing involved – the program only requires you to log your hours every day at work on the computer.

If you want to get a jump on the competition for those great career jobs after your tour of duty, enroll in the program at
