Located in the historic Old U.S. Customs House in the heart of downtown, the Houston MEPS has been processing applicants for the Armed Forces at the present site since 1966. With a small staff, the MEPS aptitudinally tests, medically examines, enlists and ships to recruit training, thousands of young people annually. Although the financial impact made by the MEPS may be miniscule in a city the size of Houston, the MEPS has a significant impact on the lives of the youngsters from southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana and their families. The Houston MEPS is one of a network of 65 MEPS located nationwide and in Puerto Rico. A separate Department of Defense (DoD) agency, USMEPCOM is comprised of two geographical sectors and staffed with personnel from all military services. The Houston MEPS has enlistment responsibility for 57 counties in Texas and 6 counties in Louisiana. Aptitude testing is offered at the MEPS and at Military Entrance Test (MET) sites near applicants' homes, reducing applicant travel time. A complete listing of the offices can be found on the Military Entrance Test (MET) Sites page of this site. To find testing locations click on the link. http://www.mepcom.army.mil/meps/houston/mets.html Information for Inbound Personnel: Military personnel considering or pending assignment to the Houston MEPS can find a variety of local information at the following website. Interservice support agreements exist with the installation below to provide MEPS military members with administrative and quality of life services. USMEPCOM does not exercise any control on the content or operation of the sites listed below.

As we are all aware of the COVID-19 challenge facing the Nation, we here at the Houston MEPS prioritize the safety and well-being of all our employees, recruiting partners, applicants, their loved ones, and the greater Houston community. In an effort to help stop/slow the spread of COVID-19 we are changing our visitor policy and we are not allowing any non-essential personnel to enter the Houston MEPS facility. Non-essential personnel becomes defined as any applicant and employee's family members and any Red Cross/USO volunteers. Unfortunately, with this change in our visitor policy we are unable to accommodate family members of applicants to participate and view in person their swear-in ceremony. We understand the importance of family and friends being able to view and be a part of their loved one's swear-in ceremony, so when available we will record our ceremonies for later viewing on our page. As we receive more information regarding this we will share and communicate this information via this platform. We appreciate your continued flexibility and understanding during this evolving situation.
