    This is a "sort of" kind of answer. Several of the senior Military colleges including VMI, Norwich, Va Tech, Texas A&M have a program with the USCG called the Direct Commission Selected School program (see below). Licensed graduates of the state Maritime Colleges (Maine, Massachusetts, New York, Texas and California) also have a Direct Commissioning option in the USCG. The DCSS Link is below:

    Direct Commission Selected School
    The Direct Commission Selected School program is a great opportunity for college graduates who were exposed to military training while earning their degree, to pursue an exciting and invigorating career in the Coast Guard. You will be able to take on responsibility fast, make critical decisions, and tackle challenging assignments.

    Eligibility Requirements
    Be a U.S citizen
    Be between the ages of 21-40
    Have a baccalaureate degree from on of the following schools:

    Norwich University
    Prairie View A&M University
    Texas A&M University
    Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
    Virginia Military Institute
    Mary Baldwin College, Virginia Women’s Institute for Leadership
    Have successfully completed at least two years of ROTC or equivalent regimented training, or two years at a federal military service academy
