Requirements for Coast Guard Maritime Academy to be an officer?

I saw this on gocoastguard.com. It says that through this program you can be an officer but no have to go to the USCGA for college(but you do have to attend a 4 week program there). What are the requirements for this? I plan on applying to the USCGA but in case I dont make it I am trying to look into as many back-up plans as possible. Thank you.

    It's not the "Coast Guard Maritime Academy", but I know what you mean. One of the other ways to commission into the Coast Guard is to graduate from a federal or state maritime academy, such as the Merchant Marine Academy, SUNY Maritime, Cal Maritime, Maine Maritime, etc. With the exception of Merchant Marine, you'll pay your own way through each.
