Coast Guard Height And Weight Requirements

The US Coast Guard is often not the first branch one thinks of when considering joining the US Military.

With that said, they do play a vital role in our nations security.

Just like the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines, the Coast Guard has height and weight standards that must be met by anyone thinking of joining.

    1. I believe the minimum height for the Coast Guard academy is the same as the regular Coast Guard, so 58 inches (or 4 ft. 10 inches). This is for both men and women, by the way.
