    Can anyone tell me what rank you can enlist at with a bachlor's degree?  My recruiter had said E-4, but all I could find online was E-3 with 60 credit hours of college.
    Thanks

    To the best of my knowledge, I thought the highest rank you can obtain enlisting in the USCG that has anything to do with college credits is E-2.  I got this information from the site below:

    I can't find the website I just saw that stated this, but I actually read the same thing you had stated in your post.  You can obtain E-2 with a minimum of 30 college credit hours and E-3 with a minimum of 60 college credit hours.  I'm sure someone on here can tell you better than me though.

    Yeah it doesn't say anything about past 60 college hours. Thanks for your quick response though!

    Bachelors = E3.

    Sorry to dredge up such an old thread.

    Chukles, if one were to enlist with a masters degree would this person also start as an E-3?

    Thanks.

    Yes you would still start out as an E3.

    Anything over 60 credits = E-3. Between 30 and 60 credits is E-2. Below 30 is E-1.
