Assimilation scenario i l.jpg

Assimilation: Scenario I

What qualifies an officer for the assimilation “Lower Board” and does it matter?

  • Candidates applied with < 3.5 years continuous active duty in current CC tour; or

  • Is permanent grade O-3 and below;

  • 90% of total selectees from this group. [NOTE: The percentages for this has changed, so is here for historical reference only.]


Assimilation scenario ii l.jpg

Assimilation: Scenario II

What qualifies an officer for the assimilation “Higher Board” and does it matter?

  • Candidates applied after 3.5 years active duty in current CC tour; and

  • Is permanent grade O-4 and above;

  • 10% of total selectees from this group. . [NOTE: The percentages for this has changed, so is here for historical reference only.]


Assimilation scenario iii l.jpg

Assimilation: Scenario III

Should a T-Grade O-6 officer apply, or continue applying, for assimilation?

  • Historically, this has been recommended mainly for officers desiring to be a Chief Professional Officer (CPO);

  • For officers striving for “flag” grade; and

  • Eligibility for career beyond 30 years*.

    *With agency/CC Retirement Board approval and needs of the service.


Assimilation scenario iv l.jpg

Assimilation: Scenario IV

Upon a return to Active Duty in the Corps, does a previously assimilated—i.e., Regular Corps—officer need to wait until “2 years on current CC tour” before re-applying for assimilation?

  • No. An officer in this situation may submit a new application packet without “minimum” time if they do so within the first two years on the new tour.

  • See Slide # 8 (The Process—“Package”).


Assimilation scenario v new l.jpg

Assimilation: Scenario V (New)

An officer who has more than 2 years prior active duty military service, does that officer get a “pass” on the “minimum 2 years” requirement as far as being able to immediately apply for assimilation?

  • No. The Corps’ assimilation guidance states that an officer must have “a minimum of two years of continuous active duty in the current tour of duty” to be eligible to apply for assimilation.

  • See page 3, Commissioned Corps Instruction (CCI) 324.01, Regular Corps Assimilation Program, (old CC23.3.7) [http://dcp.psc.gov/eccis/documents/CCPM23_3_7.pdf]
