MCOLES Physical Requirements

Physical Requirement

The Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards (MCOLES) requires potential recruits to pass a Pre-Enrollment Physical Fitness Test. Physical fitness standards are based on age and gender. These standards and specific information regarding format, cost, and registration are available on the MCOLES website. Additionally, the MCOLES web page describes the individual events in detail and provides guidelines to assist you in preparing for each event. Physical fitness testing must be completed within 180 days prior to the start date of the academy session for which you are applying.

Note: Grand Valley State University is not a physical fitness testing site.
