  • Current requirements to join in California

    For all of you living in California and either wanting to join. Here is what you need to join in California (most other states have pretty much the same guidelines):

    Non-Prior Service CAT I-IIIA (i.e. you need to score at least a 50 on the ASVAB)

    Non-Prior Service CAT IIIB (31+ on the ASVAB, however this currently requires an NGB ROC override and California has a long waiting list already)

    HS Seniors

    Education Tier I (i.e. HSDG, HSSR, CIHSJR, ASSC, NURS, BACH, PROF, MAST, PAS, HOME, and DOCT)

    Active First

    Patriot Academy

    GET Plus

    Prior Service DMOSQ and Non MOSQ are welcome to join

    Prior Service requiring WTC can join

    We are taking stated level AG waivers

    We are taking NGB Administrative and medical waivers

    California is not taking:

    CAT IV (AFQT 16-30)

    Tier II education (i.e. we are not taking GEDs)

    HS Juniors

    No NGB moral waivers at this time (i.e. felony/drug waivers)

    No NGB waivers for mental health (had a guy walk in today with an RE-4 from the navy due to behavioral disorder... needless to say, he got turned away)

            Split option is still around, but right now no HS juniors can join because they have run out of training seats that will allow a junior to complete basic in time to be back to start school in the fall.

              Thank you. Was going to answer that, but got busy wrestling with the kids You are right, there are no more training seats for HS Juniors. Split Option is still available.

                    California will also no longer be accepting applicants from San Fransisco, sorry.

                            Hello all new to the forum and looked around and this was the only place that my post made sense so if Im in the wrong spot please forgive me. Im working on my re-enlistment, prior service, told my recruiter I wanted 15t uh-60 mech and was told there are avn slots here in Sacramento. Retook my ASVAB and scored 119 gt and 145 mm so I know I qualify for the mos, but was told that after I pass MEPS I will not swear in there or select my mos there??? I was Also told that in order to get this mos I would have to interview with the units? Does this sound right?

                              Who sets the ASVAB score requirements? The fed or individual states? Reason I ask is someone in chat the other night was saying California's ASVAB requirement was at 31.

                              Hard to believe if you think about it.
