Senior enlisted considered by the FY15 board are classified in one of three categories in BOL:

SECB is a performance-driven review of active duty, full-time support, and Reserve master chiefs, senior chiefs and chiefs with more than 19 years of service and three years' time-in-grade. The board helps to ensure the highest standards are maintained in the senior enlisted ranks.

Active duty and full-time support Sailors not selected for continuation must transfer to the Fleet Reserve or retire by Aug. 31, unless operationally waived by the Deputy Chief of Naval Personnel to remain on active status by Nov. 30.

Reserve Sailors must transfer to the Retired Reserve (with or without pay) by Sept. 1. Those with an approved operational waiver from Commander, Navy Reserve Forces Command can remain in a drilling status until an approved date of not later than Dec. 1.

The deadline for non-continued Sailors requesting transfer to Fleet Reserve, retirement or Retired Reserve (with or without pay) to NPC has been extended to March 15 from the original date of Jan. 31 announced in NAVADMIN 180/14.
