    I'm looking into it as well. Below is some general info on it thats on their website. Also where did you see that they require(although it wouldn't surprise me) a GPA of 3.0?




    What is the Federal Career Intern Program (FCIP)?

    The Federal Career Intern Program (FCIP) is designed to help agencies recruit and attract exceptional individuals to a variety of occupations. It was created under Executive Order 13162 [PDF] and is intended for trainee positions at grade level GL-5 or GL-7. In general, individuals are appointed as a Deputy U.S. Marshal for a two year Trial Period. Upon successful completion of the Trial Period, the FCIP Deputy may be eligible for permanent placement within the agency.

    Individuals who are selected and hired under the FCIP are Deputy U.S. Marshals, not to be confused with student interns.
    FCIP Deputies are in a Trial Period for the entire two year term. During this Trial Period, FCIP Deputies will be regularly counseled and evaluated on their performance. Continuation of the program is contingent upon satisfactory performance during the Trial Period.
    If an FCIP Deputy is not performing at the successful level, he or she may be removed from the program.
    FCIP Deputies will not be required to serve a probationary period following their conversion to the competitive service. The two years employees spend in the excepted appointment will serve as the employee’s probationary period.
    FCIP Deputies must also complete the three year Deputy Development Program which runs concurrent with the two year Trial Period. After FCIP Deputies complete the two year Trial Period they’ll have one more year to complete the Deputy Development Program.
    FCIP Deputy US Marshals are eligible for their GS-11 in the 1811 (criminal investigator) series after completing all their requirements at the GL-9 in the 082 series. As a criminal investigator, you are eligible to receive Law Enforcement Availability Pay (LEAP). <top>

      You don't see it because the Co-op Program is CSCEP, not FCIP.

        The GPA requirement is 2.7 overall and 3.0 in your major. Schools vary on how the select the students. I know probably 30 or more Deputies who have got on throught the CO-OP.

          In fall 2007, my senior year of college I interned with the USMS-E/PA. It was just the internship, not the shining star program which has the potential to hire the interns. Both programs required a 3.0 gpa

            Shining Star was for military. It was the hiring initiative they were doing at the time. Just like FCIP now. The Co-op Program, which this person is asking about is only done at certain schools throughout the country. If you get in the co-op program you have an excellent chance of getting a job. Now there is the intern program which is different. In the co-op program you get paid, benefits and so forth as well as your time added towards retirment if picked up. As an intern you get the exposure and the reference. Not that great of a chance to get on as the co-op program.

                Yes this is the program, your a low level marshal and you have to to still be a full time student and maintain the GPA. Just gotta get into the program now.

                  Well....you're a low level co-op. Most of what you'll do is learning the ropes as far as paperwork and and daily operations. You aren't a low level DUSM until you get hired.

                          They only choosing in January? I'm transferring to John Jay for the Fall of 2010 and hope to get on.

                          I was wondering, for the fitness do they actually check for body fat?

                            Depends on the deputies where you go. A couple of the guys from the office went through the co-op program, and each one had different experiences. One was pretty much treated the same way I am right now, which mean's he was mainly a clerical intern in the office at almost all times, while one of the other guys was completely opposite; one time they were about to hit a house and the supervisor gave him an AR-15 and said for him to watch the house while they hit it. As for the fit, again, it depends. One of the Co-op guys had to run a fit test every month until he was hired, supposedly just to keep his fit records current, but they never checked his body fat percentage during that time. It just kind of depends on where you go really.

                              It all depends on your school, our school and the local USMS office only requires a 2.5 for any internships.
