The chart below shows the weight requirements for females to enlist in the Marine Corps Delayed Enlistment Program (DEP).

Applicants who exceed the weight limits below require a waiver, approved by the Marine Corps Recruiting Region Commanding General, in order to enlist in the DEP. Waivers are only approved if the female recruit can achieve a 2nd Class Score on the Marine Corps Physical Fitness Test (PFT), and does not exceed allowable body-fat limits.

The Marine Corps Body-Fat limit for female recruits is 26 percent. The procedures to measure body fat can be found in Marine Corps Order (MCO) 6100.12 - MARINE CORPS PHYSICAL FITNESS TEST AND BODY COMPOSITION PROGRAM MANUAL.

Prior to shipping out to basic training, Marine Recruits must meet different (more strict) weight standards, known as the "Retention Weight Standards." Female recruits who exceed the Retention Weight Standards can still ship out to basic training, if they receive an approved waiver from the Marine Corps Recruiting Region Commanding General. Waivers can only be submitted if the recruit is within allowable body-fat standards (26 percent), and achieves a 2nd class score on the PFT.
