Promotion & Oral Board Testing

WHEN: Sun, August 7, 10am – 1pm

WHERE: 5575 W 220th St Fairview Park, Ohio 44126-2951

Promotion & Oral Board Testing will be scheduled monthly outside the regularly scheduled Drill Dates unless otherwise stated. In order to be considered for Promotion Testing, Young Marines must verify they qualify for the Rank requested by logging into their Record Book and comparing to the Promotion Requirements.

Any Young Marine requesting Promotion will need to Schedule an Appointment on the link below and select an appointment time for their Oral Board. They only need to show up for their scheduled appointment time (unless they are required to take a written Guidebook Completion Exam). After scheduling the Appointment, they will be directed to the Promotion Request form which needs to be completed and brought to the Appointment with a copy of their most recent report card and a current Progress Report. NO late promotion requests will be accepted. Once the Appointments are filled, or if the Young Marine does not meet the requirements of the requested rank, they will have to wait until the next scheduled Promotion Testing date.
