GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  PER REF A, MARINES WHO MAKE A LATERAL MOVE ARE NO LONGER ELIGIBLE FOR PROMOTION IN THEIR FORMER PRIMARY MOS.  PER REF B, MARINES ENTERING INTO A CORPORAL OR SGT ENTRY-LEVEL IMOS WILL BE CONSIDERED FOR PROMOTION NON-COMPETITIVELY AS FOLLOWS:
   A.  NON-COMPETITIVE, ENTRY-LEVEL, MOS.  AN ENTRY LEVEL MOS WITH A PREREQUISITE GRADE WILL NOT HAVE AN ESTABLISHED CUTTING SCORE FOR THAT GRADE.  LANCE CORPORALS AND CORPORALS REENLISTING INTO AN ENTRY-LEVEL MOS, AS DESIGNATED BELOW, WHO HAVE NOT YET ATTAINED THAT GRADE MAY BE PROMOTED NON-COMPETITIVELY TO THAT GRADE.  PROMOTION IN THE INTENDED MOS IS SUBJECT TO REENLISTMENT AND TIG/TIS ELIGIBILITY PER REFERENCE A.  IN ORDER TO EFFECT PROMOTIONS FOR ELIGIBLE MARINES, COMMANDS MUST SUBMIT A REQUEST FOR PROMOTION AUTHORITY TO MMPR-2 ALONG WITH A COPY OF THE SIGNED REENLISTMENT DOCUMENT.  PRIOR TO SUBMISSION OF A REQUEST, COMMANDS MUST ENSURE THE MARINE HAS COMPLETED THE REQUIRED PME.  ONCE APPROVED, MMPR-2 WILL RUN A PROMOTION TO THAT GRADE.  THE DATE OF RANK AND EFFECTIVE DATE WILL BE THE FIRST OF THE MONTH AFTER REENLISTMENT AFTER MEETING TIG/TIS. EXAMPLE 1: MARINE CORPORAL HAS TIG/TIS PRIOR TO REENLISTMENT (WITH A LATERAL MOVE OPTION OF 0211) AND REENLISTS ON 15 MAR 12.  THIS MARINE'S DATE OF RANK AND EFFECTIVE DATE WILL BE 1 APR 12 (I.E., THE FIRST OF THE MONTH AFTER REENLISTMENT) BECAUSE THIS MARINE MEETS ALL ELIGIBLE REQUIREMENTS FOR PROMOTION PER PARA 1202.1 OF REF A. EXAMPLE 2: MARINE CORPORAL WITH A DATE OF RANK OF 1 MAY 11 AND REENLISTS (WITH A LATERAL MOVE OPTION OF 0211) ON 15 MAR 12.  THIS MARINE'S DATE OF RANK AND EFFECTIVE DATE WILL BE 1 MAY 12 (I.E., 12 MONTHS AFTER PROMOTION TO CORPORAL) BECAUSE A CORPORAL NEEDS 12 MONTHS TIG BEFORE BEING ELIGIBLE FOR PROMOTION TO SERGEANT PER PARA 1202.1 OF REF A.
   B.  MARINES WHO ARE PROMOTED UNDER THEIR INTENDED MOS, AND LATER FAIL TO COMPLETE THE QUALIFICATIONS FOR THAT MOS, WILL BE ADMINISTRATIVELY REDUCED. (PARA 6002.1 APPLIES.)
2.  EFFECTIVE THE DATE OF THIS MARADMIN, THE FOLLOWING MOS'S ARE CONSIDERED NON-COMPETITIVE ENTRY-LEVEL MOS'S ELIGIBLE FOR PROMOTION AND ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE BASED ON THE NEEDS OF THE MARINE CORPS: 0211, 0241, 0372, 0689, 2336, 3044, 4133, 4821, AND 5821.
3.  PRIOR TO DELIVERY OF THE PROMOTION WARRANT, COMPLIANCE WITH REF A IS REQUIRED.  COMMANDERS MUST ENSURE THAT A MARINE IS NOT PROMOTED UNLESS THE INDIVIDUAL CAN BE EXPECTED TO ASSUME THE RESPONSIBILITIES AND PERFORM THE DUTIES OF THAT GRADE IN A CREDITABLE AND SATISFACTORY MANNER.
4.  THE ABOVE POLICY IS NOT APPLICABLE TO THE MARINE CORPS RESERVE AND IS NOT RETROACTIVE.
