This is a partnership between universities and colleges and the U.S. Marine Corps. Its purpose is to:
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.
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.

The Joint Service Transcript (JST) documents recommended college credit for military training in a format widely accepted by colleges and universities.
