TRANSFER TO THE REGULAR NAVY
Navy Reserve officers and Regular Navy
temporary officers may transfer to the Regular Navy.
The primary objective of this program is to meet
deficiencies in the numbers of Regular Navy officers
in the various staff corps and line communities.
Regular permanent appointments are made to the
active-duty list of the Navy in both the line and staff
corps as appropriate.
The Secretary of the Navy convenes a selection
board twice a year, normally in April and October, to
consider the records of those officers applying for
transfer to the Regular Navy. As with other
competitive selections in your career, performance is
critical to selection. Refer to MILPERSMAN, article
1020120, for details on application, processing, and
If you request transfer to the Regular Navy in
conjunction with a request for a lateral transfer
between restricted line, unrestricted line, and staff,
follow the procedures in MILPERSMAN, article
1020120. Refer to MILPERSMAN, article 1020150, to
request lateral transfer without augmentation.
Reserve officers are eligible for permanent
appointment in the Regular Navy after they have
completed 3 years on active duty (while serving under
a 4-year obligation). Those who serve under a 2-year
agreement are eligible to transfer to the Regular Navy
after 1 year of active commissioned service.
