Prior Active Navy now in Reserves and I am participating in Army ROTC this fall while in Grad School. I am moving to GA in order to do grad school so will be transferring to the NOSC there. I am working with my ROTC unit to get my 368 together in order to submit it to my reserve unit, but I havnt moved there yet or have a POC at my new NOSC. Should I reach out to the NC1 at NOSC ATL in order to submit this DD 368?

I dont have to officially contract as a cadet until December, but I would prefer to not have to drill, do ROTC, and be a full time grad student all at once. What is the turn around usually?

Thanks in advance

The 368 can take some time depending on the responsiveness of the command. The actual unit you are assigned to when you are requesting the release would be responsible for submitting it. However, usually Commanders are pretty flexible with ROTC cadets. I know quite a few Army Reservists who are ROTC and are SMPs. They get excused by the Commander from UTAs to perform ROTC assemblies. It may be the easier option since December is only 5 months away.

It really depends on your Naval COC since you belong to them until your properly released. I’d try the informal reaching out you mentioned to see if you can grease the skids. Weekend drlll, ROTC Field Training exercises can all make a time crunch while in Grad School for sure!

As the CSM indicated, the conditional release (DD Form 368) would be approved/signed by the Commander of the Reserve unit in which you're holding a billet. You won't be officially released from the Reserve unit until you provide an official ROTC contract. After which, you should recieve discharge orders from the Reserves within a month or two.

Roger PO1. What is the turn around time usually like on the 368 alone? My ROTC unit needs me to contract by December.

There's no specific turn around time. If you need this ASAP, give your commander a call and email him the form. Alternatively, your reserve unit's full time support (FTS) staff can facilitate this request on your behalf. Please ensure the form is filled out completely to include the recruiter section. Good luck on your path to becoming an officer.
