**Note: If you already hold a Reserve Commission (via DCO, OCS, on EAD, etc) you do not qualify for the Regular to Reserve Panel, even if you are on Active duty and have never been a drilling reservist. In this case, you may be qualified for the Reserve Officer Active Status Panel (ROASP). This panel normally convenes in February. Any questions regarding the type of Commission held by an Officer may be directed to: HQS-SMB-CGPSC-RPM-BoardsPanels@uscg.mil.
Individuals wishing to minimize their time in the IRR/ISL and who are eligible, should apply to the October Regular to Reserve panel due to eResume submission deadlines. E-Resumes are typically due in January of every assignment year.
Military Service Obligation (MSO) does not guarantee reserve affiliation. However, if a member still has a MSO requirement is offered a reserve commission, the member is obligated to accept. Involuntary separation negates a member's MSO.
NOTE: Timelines may vary depending on the time of year.
