 Application notes:

  • Please fill out the excel doc titled ‘Applicant Info’ and include it in the email when you submit your application.  Do not make the Applicant Info doc an enclosure on your application.  Provide as much information as possible, to include 2 emails and 2 phone number. 
  • The only required enclosure for all applicants is the IMR status from BOL.  Certain communities have additional medical requirements (see Requirements Document) that are required for those applicants.
  • Letters of recommendation are encouraged, but not required.  Limit of four.
  • The remainder of the enclosures are only necessary if they are missing from your official navy record (see OMPF and ODC on BOL).
  • Correspondence to the Board President via LTB is only if something changes between 05 October and 15 November.  For example, a FITREP or award that was received between those dates qualifies, but this deadline does NOT mean you can submit your application enclosures after the application deadline.
  • Year Group waiver requests will be handled internally at BUPERS-3 (no additional steps for the applicant).  BUPERS-35 is the final adjudication on this waiver request.

Board Results will be posted on this website as soon as they are approved.  Approval time is typically within four weeks after the board adjourns.  Results are NOT released by message traffic.
