    So i'm currently enlisted in the Army National Guard, is it possible for me to do NROTC Marine Option or do I have to wait until my stint's up?

    Yes.

    Active-duty candidates selected for an NROTC scholarship program will be issued orders to the appropriate NROTC unit. After reporting, they will be released from active duty, enlisted in the U.S. Naval Reserve, and appointed as midshipmen in the U.S. Naval Reserve. Upon successful completion of the program, they agree to accept an appointment, if offered, as a commissioned officer in the Regular Navy. If disenrolled from the NROTC Scholarship Program prior to entering their sophomore year, applicants will be ordered back to active duty to fulfill the unexpired terms of their enlisted commitments.

    thanks, but I'm not active duty. I'm in the Army National Guard, which is a rserve component. And what worries me is that i'm not looking to be an army officer, but a Marine one.

    Probably won't hurt.
    When I did an AROTC visit at a school, I sat in at an Army 101 class, and the guy sitting next to me had an air force tab on his Air force back pack, aka he was enlisted in the air force before doing ROTC.

    You would need to talk to your CoC and the units cadre. I highly doubt the Guard will just release you like that. I know you can participate in NROTC as a Guardsmen, however contracting and scholarship is completely different, since you are still under a contract with the Army.
