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.

  • First and Last Name,
  • Rate,

  • Desired geographic location(s) and
  • Desired timeline for returning to the SELRES.


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. 
Officers with questions regarding the IRR-to-SELRES transition process should email the RPM-3 Reserve Officer email query at:
