number may be found at the Pay and Personnel Center CG Portal site 
ns%20Branch.aspx and is subject to change.
4. Advancements to BM2 will be made using the BM2 Supplemental List found at

is the BM2 cut and all names above it will be advanced.
5. Members who appear at or above the cutoff on a SWE eligibility list are 
assured of advancement if they remain eligible. However, these members are 
considered not eligible for further SWE competition until they advance off 
this SWE eligibility list.  Personnel placing below the cutoffs are highly 
encouraged to participate in the upcoming SWE competition providing they 
remain eligible to compete.
6. Per Ref C, the Commanding Officer's recommendation for advancement is 
valid only for a specific competition and must be renewed for each succeeding 
competition. The CO's recommendation for advancement must be maintained for 
the period from recommendation to advancement. Members failing to maintain 
the CO's recommendation for this period shall be invalidated from the SWE(s) 
in which they participated. Members who have been invalidated must be 
recommended and qualify again through a new SWE competition. When removing 
members from the SWE advancement eligibility list(s) due to not meeting these 
requirements, the CO shall advise PPC (ADV) by e-mail via AOIX at CMD-SMD-CG-
PPC with CG PSC as information addressee at CMD-SMD-CG-PSC. Additional 
guidance is available at https://cg.portal.uscg.mil/units/psc/psc-
7. Per Article 3.A.13.d of Ref C and Ref D, personnel who have been selected 
for promotion to CWO, above the cutoff on the CWO list, are ineligible for 
advancement to E-7, E-8, or E-9 unless the individual concerned has notified 
both Commander (CG PSC-OPM) and (CG PSC-EPM) of their intention to decline 
appointment to CWO.
8. Per Ref C, members newly above the cutoff for E-7 or E-8 must complete the 
Chief Petty Officer Academy (CPOACAD) to be eligible to advance to the next 
higher paygrade.  Members will be automatically slated for FY-19 convenings 
based on the member’s position on the advancement eligibility list. Members 
above the cutoff for E-9 must complete the Senior Enlisted Leadership Course 
(SELC) to be eligible to advance to E-9 and must submit an Electronic 
Training Request for the course.  COMDT (CG-128) is the Program Manager for 
the enlisted leadership continuum and the single point of contact for all 
CPOACAD and SELC requests for waivers from advancement policy and deferral of 
course attendance.
