College degree from an accredited college, and for most degrees three years work experience. At times dependent on needs of agency some degrees don't require three years, ie computer science, law, accounting. Best resource for changing demands is website fbi.gov. Mark Gant

We had a family member who was a Special Agent with the FBI. She had been in the military and then completed college. Then I believe the actual training was 8-9 months in Virginia. The college degree is likely a necessity, but not the military. It will take you longer to get accepted than the training. There is an FBI office somewhere near you, probably in the Federal Building. I would honestly suggest you go there and ask what you seeking. If you are a student investigating the FBI as a career someone will give you a few minutes. Good luck.

To become an agent you must meet the age, education and physical fitness requirement. There are more but these are typically the top ones that are missed. You must obtain a bachelor's degree prior to applying. You then go through a 8 step hiring process and after completion go to the academy to become an agent.
