Student Uniform & Grooming

MLA Cadets will wear their uniforms in accordance with the Marine Corps Uniform Regulations, MCO 102.34H.  Questions on these guidelines should be addressed to the Commandant, Sergeant Major, Military Instructors, or Dean of Military Model.  Proper wear of Marine Corps uniforms and participation and adherence to the Military Model are REQUIREMENTS.  Any requests for religious or cultural accommodations to these regulations must be approved by Headquarters, Marine Corps Junior ROTC.

All Cadets are taught extensively the details on how to properly wear the uniform and these guidelines are only highlights and reminders of some of the most common issues which can result in delays in progress, lower grades, lack of promotions, and potentially disciplinary consequences and probation.  All regulations and guidelines apply regardless of location when a Marine Corps JROTC uniform is worn.

Questions regarding the uniform guidelines may be directed to the cadet's Military Instructor, Sgt.Maj. or Commandant
