Army ASVAB AFQT Score Requirements

The Army is the least restrictive branch of the military when it comes to AFQT scores.  In fact, if your score puts you in Category IV your slim chances of enlistment are limited to the Army.

The minumum AFQT score necessary for enlistment in the Army is 31 whether you have a high school diploma or a GED.  Waivers are available for scores down to 26 depending on the current recruiting requiments.

A minimum score of 50 is required for you to qualify for most incentive programs like the Army College Fund, college loan repayment, and monetary enlistment bonuses.

Retest Policy

If you don’t meet the minimum AFQT score requirements for the Army the option for a retest is available under the circumstances:

  1. The applicant’s previous ASVAB test has expired (text scores expire after two years).
  2. The applicant did not achieve a score that was high enough to qualify for enlistment.
  3. Under unusual circumstances such as those that prevent an applicant from completing the test (but not for illness – applicants are told not to take the test if they’re ill).

Note that retests are not authorized for the sole purpose of qualifying a recruit for an incentive program.
