Marine ASVAB Score Requirements
Like the other branches of the military there are also minimum ASVAB scores for Marines. The United States Marine Corps – USMC has several minimum requirements based on information from the ASVAB test for those interested in enlisting.
High school graduates need to get a ASVAB score of 32 to “pass” the ASVAB. However those without a high school diploma but have a high school equivalency or GED must score a 50 to be able to enlist in the United States Marine Corps.
Many jobs within the Marines have ASVAB score requirements, so it is important to not only pass the ASVAB test but to do as well as you can.
Positions or jobs in the Marines are referred to as a Military Occupational Specialty, more commonly abbreviated to “MOS”. The Marines calculates what Military Occupational Specialty you qualify for by assembling various ASVAB subtest scores into groups, known as line scores. You can find a full list of Marine Corps MOS Codes.
