Submit all application packages and queries to: arl-smb-cgpsc-r2r-IDPLDesignationQuery@uscg.mil
Incomplete/incorrect packages will be returned without action.
**Note: If you already hold a Reserve Commission (via DCO, OCS, or are on EAD, etc.) you do not qualify for the Regular to Reserve Panel, even if you’re on Active Duty and have never been a drilling Reservist. In this case, you may be qualified for the Inactive Duty Promotion List (IDPL) Designation Panel that is held annually, usually in February. Any questions regarding the type of Commission held by an Officer may be directed to: ARL-PF-CGPSC-RPM-Boardspanels@uscg.mil.
Individuals wishing to minimize their time in the IRR/ISL should apply to the October Regular to Reserve panel due to eResume submission deadlines. EResume’s are typically due in January of every assignment year.
MSO does not guarantee Reserve affiliation. However if a member with an MSO is offered a Reserve commission, the member is obligated to accept. Involuntary separation negates a member’s MSO.
