USNA Reserve Recall

Reserve Recall Opportunities

*** The USNA Reserve Recall Program is now CLOSED. ***

Please check back in early Fall 2023.

The U.S. Naval Academy has a need for qualified Navy reserve officers, especially at the ranks of LT, LCDR, and CDR, to instruct in academic departments and serve as outstanding military role models for midshipmen. Successful candidates will have at least a master’s degree in an appropriate academic discipline. Orders typically commence in July and last for 3 years.

Recall Opportunities

Recall Opportunities will be considered for all academic departments at USNA. Applicants will be selected based on candidate qualifications and USNA manning short falls.  

In order to apply, the following are required:

  • Application cover letter (PDF only)
  • Resume/CV (PDF only)
  • PII-sanitized versions of last 3 FITREPS (SINGLE PDF Only - Most recent FITREP on first page)
  • PII-sanitized versions of ALL academic transcripts (SINGLE PDF Only - Most recent program on first page)

Once you have these documents, complete the application.  Your application will be reviewed for completeness and the board will convene in December 2022.

Applications and Selection

To receive full consideration, interested officers for Academic Years 2024-2026 should apply no later than 20 November 2022.  Officers selected will be recalled to active duty and assigned orders for an officer-instructor three year tour commencing July 2023.  Recalled officers will remain on the reserve active status list and will remain eligible for promotion consideration before reserve selection boards.

Selections will be made only after USNA placement officers are confident that USNA billets will not be filled from the active duty pool of potential officer instructors.  Applicants will be made aware of their selection status by mid-January 2023.  Final arrangements are contingent upon PCS funding being available through the Navy.
