The High Year Tenure (HYT) Program is a vital and effective force shaping tool to properly size and shape the active and Reserve Navy. This is a total force policy which establishes standardized length-of-service (LOS) gates by pay grade balanced with a waiver process that allows Navy to retain the right Sailor. As one of Navy's key enlisted force shaping tools, the HYT Program enables viable career paths and advancement opportunity across all pay grades and LOS spectrums. The standardized HYT gates are established to allow Sailors the greatest flexibility to stay Navy in a stabilized force. Through this process, Navy enhances quality throughout continuum of service.

HYT applies to members of the active, full time support (FTS), and selected Reserve (SELRES) communities within the Navy.

Unless HYT waiver approval is authorized by the Enlisted Community Manager (BUPERS-32), Active Duty (ACDU) and FTS personnel may only reenlist or extend up to their HYT date for their current pay grade. Personnel who have been selected for advancement to the next higher pay grade may reenlist or extend up to the HYT date of their prospective pay grade.
