I remember back when I was a SPC I took the MOS 46Q Army Correspondence Course in Afgahnistan, but was unable to finish the last four courses due to the fact that they required materials to be mailed back and forth, and I never recieved the packets. Is there any chance I can finish this course by getting the information or even restarting the correspondence course somehow? I still remember everything as I used the information in college these past few years. I graduate with three associate degrees in intelligence, french, general education and one BA in Political Science in December.
Old ex Bob Rhunda-trained 46R here. I'm doing a bit of recon for my daughter, who is skeptical about following in her dad's footsteps. Can you tell me what the screening requirements are for those who are potential enlistees wishing to join for the 46Q field? As a broadcaster, I had to submit an audtion tape. Is there anything like that required for 46Q? (writing samples, etc).
As for the 46Q, there currently are no requirements for people to submit a writing sample or anything. They have to meet the basic requirements outlines above and DINFOS will train the rest.

What ASVAB scores are required for 46Q?
I believe you need a GT score of 110.
Here is the information you requested:
(4) Qualifying scores.
(a) A minimum score of 110 in aptitude area GT on ASVAB tests administered prior to 1 July 2004.
(b) A minimum score of 107 in aptitude area GT on ASVAB tests administered on and after 1 July 2004.
These are the same for both 46Q and 46R.
Hope this is useful,

I qualify for both I was more interested in 46R till I read this post. But when you posted it you put that you had to have a 2 yr or 4 yr degree for 46Q, did you mean for 46R as well. I do have credits from a broadcasting school as well as an internship under my belt. I just wanted to make sure that was for 46Q and 46R because you put active for 46Q. Ok thanks for your time SFC Beach.
P.S. I'm PS also. I'm an E-4 now just got my NG release approved to go active.
The degree requirement applies for both 46Q and 46R for the active duty.
Does 46Q with the National Guard require a degree? Or is that only for active duty Army?

woody you dont need legs or a brain, you can be a sand bag in the army
