    This is direct from the AUXMAN (Auxiliary Manual). It's online for public viewing:

    A.4. Criminal
    Convictions,
    Behavior, and
    Waivers
    The following provisions guide the consideration of different types of
    criminal records and behaviors of individuals who seek enrollment in the
    Auxiliary.
    COMDTINST M16790.1G
    3-5
    A.4.a. Felony
    Convictions
    Application for Auxiliary membership should be denied by the Director if
    the applicant indicates any conviction, particularly those related to drug
    possession or use (including trafficking, trading, selling), sexual deviation, or
    aggravated assault, as set forth in the Coast Guard Recruiting Manual,
    COMDTINST M1100.2 (series). Paragraph A.4.e below provides additional
    details. Such denial shall be regarded as final. However, the Director may
    forward an application to the Coast Guard Security Center (SECCEN) for
    normal PSI processing with a recommendation to waive the felony
    conviction as a reason for an unsuitable for service determination if the
    Director determines that reasonable circumstances exist for such waiver
    consistent with provisions of the Coast Guard Recruiting Manual,
    COMDTINST M1100.2 (series).
    A.4.b. Major
    Misdemeanor
    Application for Auxiliary membership should be denied by the Director if
    the applicant indicates any major misdemeanor conviction related to drug
    possession or use (including trafficking, trading, selling), sexual deviation,
    aggravated assault, and those other major misdemeanor crimes as set forth in
    the Coast Guard Recruiting Manual, COMDTINST M1100.2 (series).
    Paragraph A.4.e below provides additional details. Such denial shall be
    regarded as final. However, the Director may forward an application to the
    SECCEN for normal PSI processing with a recommendation to waive the
    major misdemeanor conviction as a reason for an unsuitable for service
    determination if the Director determines that reasonable circumstances exist
    for such waiver consistent with provisions of the Coast Guard Recruiting
    Manual, COMDTINST M1100.2 (series).
    A.4.c. Minor
    Misdemeanor
    Application for Auxiliary membership should not normally be denied by the
    Director if the applicant has a record of minor misdemeanor offenses (e.g.,
    traffic and non-traffic conviction(s)). Paragraph A.4.e below provides
    additional details. However, the Director may deny an application if, based
    upon all available information presented or after initiating further inquiry to
    gather additional relevant facts, these convictions provide evidence of
    personal character inconsistent with Coast Guard core values. Such denial
    shall be regarded as final.
    A.4.d. Other
    Than Prior
    Criminal History
    Auxiliary membership is a privilege, not an entitlement. Accordingly,
    suitability for service in the Auxiliary is predicated as much on high
    standards of personal character as it is on the review of an individual’s
    criminal history and the associated outcome of the PSI process.
    COMDTINST M16790.1G
    3-6
    If at any time during the enrollment process up to and including submission
    of the enrollment application, the Director becomes aware, either through
    first-hand observation(s) and/or verified third-party report(s), of any
    element(s) of an individual’s personal behavior and/or moral character that is
    inconsistent with Coast Guard core values, the Director may deny the
    individual’s application. The Director shall make this determination, in
    consultation with the District legal office and the Chief Director, and notify
    the individual of such denial and its reason. There shall be no avenue of
    appeal of this denial.
    If at any time after acceptance of an individual’s enrollment application by
    the Director up to and including receipt of the PSI determination from
    SECCEN, the Director becomes aware, either through first-hand
    observation(s) and/or verified third-party report(s), of any element(s) of an
    individual’s personal behavior and/or moral character that is inconsistent
    with Coast Guard core values, the Director may disenroll the individual for
    cause in accordance with section H.5 of this chapter.
    Circumstances surrounding civil court action involving an applicant may
    warrant a determination of lack of suitability for Auxiliary service (e.g.,
    acquittal of egregious criminal charges, but conviction on associated civil
    charges), whether the circumstances are discovered prior to acceptance of the
    enrollment application or subsequent to enrollment. The Director shall make
    this determination, in consultation with the District legal office and
    Commandant (CG-5421). Anyone denied enrollment based upon this
    provision may appeal to the Director’s supervisor. The Director’s
    supervisor’s decision shall be final and not subject to further review or
    appeal. This provision also applies to an applicant who may be awaiting trial
    or sentence by a civil court.
    A.4.e.
    Disclosure of
    Felony, Major
    Misdemeanor, or
    Minor
    Misdemeanor
    Conviction
    The following provisions deal with the requirement to provide notification
    and information regarding conviction for a felony, major misdemeanor, or
    record of minor misdemeanors when applying for Auxiliary membership.

    So... It doesn't specifically say "No DUI's". However, if there is an aggrivating factor (felony DUI, multiple arrests, etc), that will probably change things. Be upfront about it. You're going to be fingerprinted, so if you have been in the past (like in a DUI arrest), it's going to show up.

    Give it a try. You'll never know if you don't. Good Luck.

    Go ahead and go through the process. A mistake is one thing, an indicator of your character is another. If the DUI is indeed 3 years ago, if you've avoided any other significant trouble before and after that, if you've shown good character in other things and if the DirAux and the FC of the unit you're applying to think you're worthy, it should be OK. First and foremost you have to be completely honest. THAT is a show of your character. You're asking to be put in a position of responsibility for your own safety and the safety of others (not command of others, just, in some cases, responsibility). You are asking to be allowed to be involved with an organization, in uniform, where your actions directly impact and reflect upon others. If you've done a minor thing, made a mistake and moved on AND you are genuine in your desire to join up and help others you should be OK. Try and see. As scoutdad25619 said above, you're going to be fingerprinted at some point and a serious background check will be done on you. If you know in your heart of hearts that you've done things you think would disqualify you, speak with the FC of the unit you're thinking of joining. Honesty and character are key. They're not trump cards, if you beat up a cop you're likely not going to get in no matter what. If you've got traffic troubles, in the past, and you're a better person now, maybe.

    It's worth a try.
