Reserve Recall Opportunities
APPLICATION WINDOW FOR ORDERS STARTING JULY 2022 IS NOW CLOSED. CHECK THIS SITE IN EARLY FALL OF 2022 FOR INFORMATION ABOUT ORDERS STARTING JULY 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 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:
-a cover letter for each department to which you are applying stating what makes you qualified for an instructor position in that department.
-an accompanying civilian resume of experience (academic, professional, and naval experience, including any recent mobilizations, recalls, or extended active duty periods)
-copies of the three most recent FITREPs with all PII removed.
Once you have these documents, complete the application. Your application will be reviewed for completeness and the board will convene in December.
Most of the questions you may have regarding this opportunity will be answered in the FAQ. You are also encouraged to attend one of the following informational phone conferences:

Applications and Selection
To receive full consideration, interested officers for Academic Years 2024-2027 should apply no later than December 1, 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-February. Final arrangements are contingent upon PCS funding being available through the Navy.
