I know that right now they are taking individuals with Bachelors Degrees. Will they waive that? I am 3 classes short of a biology degree but unfortunately haven’t had time to go back because of the types of classes they are. I am prior service. I know occasionally they will do it with stipulations of completing the degree before promotion. I do have about 3 years of experience in healthcare IT

At minimum you will need some sort of BS + work experience related to what a 70D does.
The question is , being that your profile is blank are you doing any sort of signal type work or a civilian job related to IT? -- Correction you said 3 years of IT.

As far as a waiver.. very unlikely . they want to see a BS , which is required for CV review purposes ( see note below)


My Background I got DC as a 70D with the following
10+ years of IT in product development/and technical work, a Masters in Information systems and about 6 years of medical IT.

note I am not aware of any DC to 70D as active duty. Just be aware of that.

I appreciate the response. So they will take a partial degree? And I have about 6 years of IT experience that I can point to on my CV with about 3 of them in the Healthcare IT realm. And I am fine with Reserves.

no its required for you to have a BS before they even try to process the CV review.
in my case since I was not prior service they would not let me process my packet until my masters degree was completed ( not required but needed it for a competitive packet)

I appreciate the response. I guess I will have to pass on this opportunity then until I can go back and finish my degree.

SGT (Join to see) - I wouldn't stop the process. Get with your recruiter and get the packet together. If you think you can take those couple of credits here you can have everything ready to go.

We appreciate your interest for 70D in the Reserve or National Guard I look for individuals that have a BA but also either experience in Healthcare and IT and certifications such as a Sec +, CISC, CISSP, CPHIMs, CHCIO, GLSC, etc. They are not required but will make your packet competitive.

For active duty, you have to meet the qualifications for a 70B Medical Service Corps Officer. At the 6 to 8, you can select 70D.
