Military Discharges

Applicants with military service must submit a certified copy of their most current military history form (DD-214 Member-4 Copy, or NGB-22) with the required forms and documents once they have been approved through the pre-screen process.

Military service will be reviewed using the following guidelines:

  1. Applicants who possess an honorable discharge will be eligible for further consideration.
  2. Applicants who possess a general discharge under honorable conditions should be considered; however, all disciplinary action must be thoroughly investigated and an evaluation of military performance must be made in order to determine if the applicant is eligible for further consideration.
  3. Any applicant who possesses a dishonorable discharge or bad conduct discharge shall be rejected and the applicant process will be discontinued.
  4. Applicants whose discharge from military service was for ineptitude, unsuitability, undesirability, or like causes will be rejected.
  5. Applicants with a reentry code 4 will be rejected and the application process will be discontinued.
