Corresponding with the Selection Board
Per NAVADMIN 220/19, Electronic Submission of Selection Board Documents (ESSBD) will become the preferred method of submitting a Letter to the Board (LTB) beginning 01 January 2020.
To utilize ESSBD, candidates must access document services through MyNavy Portal (MNP) at or the BOL main menu.  From the BOL main menu, select "Navy Personnel Command Document Services," Start Process, Selection Board and LTB.  On-screen instructions will direct the submitter thereafter.  Submissions should be prepared with attachments (if applicable), prior to initiating their LTB.  There is no save and return function between BOL sessions.  Submitters will receive an e-mail confirmation regarding the status of their submitted LTB.
ESSBD attachments must be in .pdf format and must not contain classified information, including any markings regarding the same.  LTBs and attachments containing such markings will not be presented to the board and may subject the submitter to disciplinary action.
Multiple LTBs to the same board will be accepted.  However, duplicate submissions, using ESSBD or other available avenues, are discouraged.
Submission and subsequent receipt acknowledgement for LTBs submitted via ESSBD or other means does not constitute confirmation of eligibility for the boards to which LTBs are submitted.  If required, a full visual user guide is available at
