Hello everyone, I don't know if this question has been answered yet but I am a reservist in the Navy and about to graduate college in May. I want to be considered for this years selection and the board for the program I am applying for convenes Feb 12. I wont have my degree until May, can I submit the rest of my application and then send my degree certificate when I get it in a few months?

You can apply as long as your less than a year from graduating so you could apply starting may of last year.

Oh wow I didn't know this. I graduate next year but I plan to take the ASTB in August after studying all summer. I planned to submit my packet for a pilot slot next may when I graduate but I guess now I can do it in Fall.

That’s what i’m doing now, i was just accepted in this last board in january and i graduate in may. you’ll get a pro-rec from the board when the results come back but you can’t receive an ocs date until final transcripts are submitted along with your degree completion

Oh wow congrats! So I'd imagine you'd ship out pretty soon after graduating right? Since you got accepted. Also are the boards like interviews?

Thanks so much man! And i won’t know my date until after I graduate like i said, but it should be right as soon as i graduate. Boards are very similar to applying to most colleges where’s there’s no interviewing. You’ll contact your recruiter and put together a package and he submits to the board and you just wait. Simple as that. Some people have gotten interviewed for secret clearance but no direct board interviews.

Officer recruiters can only work with Navy reservists if you are applying for CEC, JAG, medical, and chaplain programs. Otherwise, you have to work with your Navy Counselor via CoC because you will be considered as a “fleet” applicant. Good luck!
