ABCs of the ASVAB

ASVAB and Commissioning


Only two of the military services use the ASVAB for commissioning qualification. The other services have separate officer qualification tests, such as the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test (AFQT).

Army. Applicants for Army OCS (Officer Candidate School) must score a minimum of 110 on the Army's GT Line Score of the ASVAB.

Marine Corps. Candidates for Marine OCC (Officer Candidate Class) or PLC (Platoon Leaders Course), must score a minimum of 115 on the Marine's GT line sore of the ASVAB. Candidates can also qualify with a minmum combined score of 1000 on the verbal and math sections of the SAT, or a combined math and verbal score of 45 on the ACT.
