Does anyone know about active duty commissions through either OCS or the Direct Commission Program for Graduates of Maritime Academies.The Maritime Graduate Program (MARGRAD) for CG commissioning.

Hi L!

What we were told is that the program exists for all Maritime Grads...they can get a direct commission into the CG, but, there are a limited number of commissions available, and the graduates will be competing with USMMA as well as all the other maritime schools for these slots. 2 different admissions reps from maritime schools gave us this information.

Hope this helps.

Thanks! yes this did help. I didn't know about that. Now I'm just wondering if i should go for that or try for OCS at USCGA. All these choices!
