2. NAVADMIN 307/20 revised NAVADMIN 288/17 now allowing early separation on a case- by-case basis.
 
3. Service members interested in obtaining a commission or an inter-Service transfer for enlistment into another branch of Service must first request a conditional release, via their CO, using NAVPERS 1306/7 Electronic Personnel Action Request. Upon CO’s approval, forward NAVPERS 1306/7 [and DD FORM 368 if applicable] to pers832adseps.fct@navy.mil .If approved, member’s command will receive a message from PERS-832 advising member may then apply for the desired program.
 
Note: COs are not the approval authority for conditional releases. Only PERS-832 may approve conditional releases. In addition, Service members must not apply for a commission or inter-Service transfer in another branch of Service without the aforementioned approval by PERS-832.
 
Upon official notification of selection for commission or enlistment in another branch of the Military Services, Service members must request separation, via their CO, from NAVPERSCOM (PERS-832), using NAVPERS 1306/7 and including a copy of the acceptance or appointment letter and reporting requirement from the program.
