Platoon Leaders Class

The Platoon Leaders Class (PLC) is just one of the paths that can lead to commissioning as an officer in the Marine Corps. For college freshman, sophomores and juniors, PLC normally consists of two, six-week training sessions (internships) taken between consecutive school years, while juniors attend one, ten-week summer training session (internship). Young men and women attending any accredited four-year college or university are eligible for this class.

Required Education and Experience:

All officers must have a degree from an accredited, four-year college or university before earning their commission. Additionally, college students can begin their path towards earning a commission while they are still in college through the PLC program. The Marine Corps encourages and fully supports the pursuit of higher learning and provides many incentives to assist with college tuition and other expenses.
