Eligibility and Enrollment
The SEBSP is a total force program. Commanders must ensure that students selected to attend the SEBSP are available for the FRS and the associated NRS.
Marine Corps Commands may nominate First Sergeants and Master Sergeants (including those selected for promotion to either) who have not previously completed the SEPME course to attend the SEBSP per assigned allocations in the Marine Corps Training Information Management System (MCTIMS).
Units must submit their nominations through their respective MARFOR representative for registration in MCTIMS. All nominations, regardless of location, must be enrolled in MCTIMS no later than 30 days prior to the class NRS orientation date. Student information required by the MARFOR representatives for processing is last name, first, MI, EDIPI and Military Occupational Specialty. SMCR units must submit their nominations through their respective MSC representative for registration in MCTIMS.
The FRS will be considered local travel or Training and Education Command (TECOM) funded Temporary Additional Duty (TAD), depending upon the primary duty station location. Marines who complete the SEBSP will meet the PME requirement for master sergeants; first sergeants must also complete the First Sergeants Course to meet their PME requirements
The American Council on Education (ACE) has not yet reviewed the SEBSP curriculum for recommended college degree credits.
