Programs & Resources


Leadership Scholar Program (LSP)

WiFi

 

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
    Office
  • 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 www.leadershipscholarprogram.com for more information.


Military Academic Skills Program (MASP)


The Military Academic Skills Program (MASP) is an educational program designed specifically for improving the reading, writing, mathematical, and communication skills of military personnel (and family members) from all DoD branches. Successful completion ensures a more confident and better prepared service member for their MOS/Ratings as well as prepares them for the pursuit of voluntary higher education opportunities.

The MASP Program is for service members with a GT score of 99 or less or a Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) score of 10.1 or below for family members. All classes are conducted in the John A. Lejeune Education center, 825 Stone Street, Camp Lejeune. All holidays will be observed in accordance with MCB Camp Lejeune’s schedule and policies. A minimum of 10 students is required for the classes to be held. Your Commanding Officer’s endorsement is required. Family members must also have a command signature and utilize their own individual SSN (not sponsor) and sponsor’s information.

MASP Daytime is comprised of a 4-week class that meets from 0800 – 1600 Monday thru Friday; MASP Nighttime is comprised of a 6-week class that meets from 1700 – 2100 Monday through Thursday.

For the 2014 MASP schedule, please click here.

You should call the Education Center at 910-451-3091 to find out how many seats are available in the course that you are interested in attending BEFORE you route the packet through your chain of command for signature. Please print out either the Daytime or Nightime MASP Packet and follow the instructions with the packet.

JST TRANSCRIPT

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.

SOCMAR PROGRAM

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 https://usmap.cnet.navy.mil
