  • Regular Army Prior Service Business Rules.

    The current Prior Service Business Rules went into effect on 5 Jan, 2015. Please visit this page periodically for updates: http://www.goarmy.com/careers-and-jo...ess-rules.html
    1) Effective 05 January 2015, PS enlistments in all skill levels, to include Service Members from Sister Services applying for the Blue to Green (B2G)
    Program, are restricted by critical MOS according to their rules. Reductions in pay grade will NOT be favorably considered, no exceptions.

    2) GNPS in pay grades E-1 thru E-4 who have not completed MOS training are not restricted to the rules. GNPS with 179 days or less of Active Federal
    Service (AFS), to include zero days on Active Duty (AD) are considered GNPS.
    For example:
    a. Separated from a Reserve Component (RC) and did not ship to Initial Active Duty Training (IADT).
    b. Separated from a RC and completed BCT but did not complete MOS training.
    c. Separated from any component of the Armed Forces with 179 days or less of AFS and did NOT complete MOS training.
    d. Disenrolled Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) who are NOT ordered to Active Duty. (Refer to the current USAREC message for Cadets who have elected to be discharged and desire to enter AD.)

    NOTE: Does not apply to Disenrolled ROTC Cadets who have been ordered to AD.

    3) All PS and GNPS reservations must be pulled by the ROC. Temporary reservations are not authorized. Special care must be taken to ensure PS and GNPS records are built with the correct days of prior military service (GNPS with the correct days of service), MOS (if applicable), military history, etc.

    4) This policy DOES NOT affect Soldiers who are removed from the Temporary Disability Retirement List (TDRL). All Soldiers removed from TDRL will have
    a formal electronic grade determination completed IAW AR 601-210, Chapter 5-51f.

    5) The rules will be updated periodically by HRC.
    a. Applicants in grade E-5 and above must submit a formal electronic request for grade determination to CG, USAREC IAW with AR 601-210, Chapter 3-17.
    b. If the applicant is MOS qualified in a MOS listed for his/her pay grade in paragraph 7a or 7c; approval will be granted in his/her grade in current PMOS, provided the applicant is otherwise qualified and meet NCOES requirements for enlistment grade.
    c. GCs must ensure applicants who indicate family member(s) who may fall under the Exceptional Family Membership Program (EFMP) are identified
    to the ROC prior to a reservation being pulled. Refer to the USAREC message on EFMP.
