SEAL Qualifications


Qualifications

By law, only men are eligible to apply for the SEAL program. Upon joining the Navy, you must:
  • Meet specific eyesight requirements: 20/40 best eye; 20/70 worst eye; correctable to 20/25 with no color blindness
  • Meet the minimum Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) score: GS+MC+EI=165 or VE+MK+MC+CS=220
  • Be 28 years old or younger
  • Be a U.S. citizen
  • Pass a physical examination required for divers
The chart below highlights the current minimum Navy Physical Screening Test (PST) requirements for Navy Challenge Programs – for aspiring members who are in the Delayed Entry Program (DEP), in Boot Camp or already serving in the Navy.
NOTE: If you're pursuing an NSW/NSO position, much better PST scoring is expected.
