Struggling to Meet Recruiting Goals, US Navy Says High School Diploma No Longer Needed

The Navy was one of three branches of the US armed forces to announce they failed to meet their recruiting target last year.

The Navy is the latest branch of the United States’ armed forces to lower its recruitment standards after struggling to meet its yearly goals.

“We get thousands of people into our recruiting stations every year that want to join the Navy but do not have an education credential,” said the branch’s chief of personnel Vice Admiral Rick Cheeseman. “And we just turn them away.”

Now the Navy will accept some of those potential recruits lacking a high school diploma or GED, assuming they’re able to score 50 or above on a qualification test.

The move comes after the service previously lowered their qualification requirements in 2022, again amidst recruitment challenges. The Navy is the only branch of the US armed forces that admits applicants who score below 30 out of 100 on the qualification test. Officials say some positions, such as in maintenance or food preparation, don’t require a conventional education.
