RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN provides updated policy guidance for administration of
the Prior Service Re-enlistment Eligibility-Reserve (PRISE-R) program in line
with reference (a), which applies to certain prior service Sailors recruited
into the Reserve Component with a temporary rating or paygrade, with the
option to make these permanent by completing professional development
requirements. Sailors requiring rating-specific training (A or C
schools) are not affected and are still required to complete program
requirements in line with reference (a) to make their rating permanent.
2. The requirement for all Selected Reserve (SELRES) E-4 candidates to take
the Navy-wide advancement exam (NWAE) to compete for advancement to E-4 is
eliminated. Effective immediately, all PRISE-R Sailors who have not
completed program requirements through the NWAE, and have no rating-specific
training requirements, will have their temporary rating made permanent.
Commander, Navy Reserve Forces Command (COMNAVRESFORCOM) will remove the
"Targeted Reentry Program" manpower availability status code in Navy Standard
Integrated Personnel System (NSIPS) and submit a single consolidated Navy
enlisted classification (NEC) Change Request (NAVPERS 1221/6) to Enlisted
Placement Management (PERS-4013) requesting removal of conversion NEC for all
3. PRISE-R Sailors who wish to revert to their prior rating may do so by
contacting their command career counselor for the most current
COMNAVRESFORCOM guidance and eligibility requirements. This authorization
applies only to Navy Veterans (NAVET). Other service veterans (OSVET) are
not eligible to apply for rate reversion.
Sailors seeking rating conversion can apply via career waypoints through the
Reserve Component (RC) to RC module.
4. New Prior Service Affiliations/Accessions. The PRISE-R program is open
to qualifying NAVETs and OSVETs as a path to Navy Reserve affiliation via a
change in rate or occupational specialty upon transition to the SELRES. All
personnel will meet specific rating requirements and program requirements in
line with reference (a) with the below program updates, though waivers may be
authorized on a case-by-case basis.
a. Applicants who affiliate in a non-service school required rating will
have their rate made permanent upon reporting to the Navy Reserve Center
(NRC) or Navy Reserve Activity (NRA).
b. Applicants may not have prior non-judicial punishment or convictions
in civilian or military courts within the previous 36 months.
c. Applicants in the pay grade of E-4 must have a time in service (TIS),
as calculated from their adjusted pay entry base date
(PEBD) upon enlistment, of fewer than 12 years.
5. Advancement Eligibility. Starting with NWAE cycle 113, PRISE-R Sailors
affected by this NAVADMIN with their now permanent rating may participate for
advancement as long as all eligibility requirements are met in line with
reference (b) and the applicable NWAE cycle NAVADMIN, utilizing the paygrade-
specific advancement methodology promulgated via the NWAE cycle NAVADMIN.
All prior service Sailors with a break in service must have a time-in-rate
(TIR) recalculation completed in line with reference (b) prior to their
advancement exam. The new TIR must be updated in NSIPS by the Sailor's NRC
6. Enlisted Incentives. PRISE-R Sailors may be eligible for a SELRES
enlisted incentive upon completion of PRISE-R program requirements. PRISE-R
Sailors affected by this NAVADMIN have met their PRISE-R program requirements
and should contact their NRC/NRA command career counselor or bonus incentive
coordinator for guidance on requesting a SELRES enlisted incentive.
Eligibility criteria for SELRES enlisted incentives may be found on the Navy
Reserve homeport website at: https://private.navyreserve.navy.mil/cnrfc/N-
