Application Package Requirements

Incomplete/incorrect packages will be returned without action

  • Written request for a Reserve Commission in CG standard memo (templated linked below)
  • Approved OPM Separation Authorization
  • Approved Report of Medical Assessment (DD - 2697)

NOTE: If you already hold a Reserve Commission (via DCO, OCS or are on EAD, etc) this is the panel to apply to even if you are on Active Duty and have never been a drilling Reservist. Any questions regarding the type of Commission held by an Officer may be directed to: Boards and Panels 

Application Timing

Applicants desiring SELRES positions may apply during the appropriate Assignment Year (AY). Please visit RPM-2 website for specific information regarding assignments. 

Military Service Obligation (MSO)

MSO does not guarantee Reserve affiliation, however, if a member with MSO is offered a Reserve commission the member is obligated to accept. Involuntary separation negates a member's MSO.
