IRR to SELRES Transition

IRR members desiring to return to the SELRES must successfully complete a series of medical, dental and administrative tasks before they are eligible to transfer to the SELRES. ASL and ISL members must complete a Reserve Component Category Change request (RCC) to the IRR before requesting transfer to the SELRES. The process for transitioning from the IRR to the SELRES is different for officers and enlisted members. The process for each is outlined below.

Enlisted

Contact the Coast Guard Recruiting Command (CGRC) In-Service Transfer Team (ISTT) at: CGR-SMB-ISTT@uscg.mil.  The email should clearly state that you are seeking a transfer from the IRR to the SELRES and include:

  • First and Last Name,
  • Rate,
  • Pay Grade,
  • Desired geographic location(s) and
  • Desired timeline for returning to the SELRES.

Officers

To be transferred to the SELRES, officers MUST BE slated for a SELRES assignment by RPM-2 and complete a series of medical, dental and administrative tasks.
