Candidate Q: USMC OCS Classroom Time

Candidates, we are running a series of small posts which answer specific candidate’s questions. Feel free to submit questions as blog comments. If the information could help others, the question may be answered as a blog post under the Q&A category.

Candidate Question:

What is the class time to ‘work’ time ratio? Will you spend most of your time in the classroom or doing physical stuff?


Great question. Each day will be very different. Some days will be all classroom time, some mostly physical, but it’s common to do a 2 hour workout in the morning, then classes and drill all the rest of the day.

To see a good example of what the schedule might be like, see the OCS Schedule post here.

Also check out the guide to OCS Academics for a good overall feel for the system in place.
