Candidates must have high school diploma or GED (not all branches accept the GED) to be accepted into the military. The better you perform on the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test and in school, the more job opportunities and choices you will have in the Services. Students who enter the military are also eligible to apply for military scholarships.  These scholarships are offered to allow service members, veterans and their families opportunities to pursue a college degree.
