Question for any Marines that may know. I just heard about a sniper course for non-grunts. They said it’s not an MOS change or anything just a course you can go on. The only course I can find is the urban sniper course but I don’t know that anyone other than scout snipers can go on it. Can anyone confirm or deny that there is a course like this for non-grunts to go on?

You are probably thinking of a Designated Marksman course... every graduate that hasn't also been to sniper school always says the course is "just like sniper school without the stalk" so they are "basically a sniper." I imagine you guys have a similar course. Google "squad designated marksman" and check out this article:
