ASVAB Score and Education Requirements for US Military Branches
Each branch of the U.S. military has its own minimum standards when it comes to the Armed Forces Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) scores and education levels needed to qualify for enlistment. As of 2018, these are the standards for each of the services for scoring on the ASVAB as well as education levels. The overall ASVAB score is known as the AFQT score, or Armed Forces Qualification Test score.
Air Force ASVAB and Education Requirements
Air Force recruits must score at least 36 points on the 99-point ASVAB. Exceptions may be made, however, for a handful of high school graduates who can score as low as 31. The vast majority, some 70 percent, of those accepted for an Air Force enlistment achieve a score of 50 or above.
The Air Force allows a higher enlistment rank for recruits with college credit.

The Army requires a minimum AFQT Score of 31 to qualify for enlistment. To qualify for certain enlistment incentives, such as enlistment bonuses, an Army recruit must score a minimum of 50.
The Army also offers a higher enlistment rank for recruits with college experience, including the rank of E-4 for those with a bachelor's degree.

The Marine Corps offers advanced enlistment rank for college credits. The maximum advanced rank for college credits is E-2.
