Sequence numbers for the next increment are published as soon as possible after receiving quotas from Headquarters Air Force. If not posted, they are not yet available.


There are two supplemental promotion processes; in-system supplemental and senior non-commissioned officer supplemental board. The in-system supplemental is processed monthly in the Weighted Airman Promotion System. Eligible staff sergeants (E-5) through senior master sergeants (E-8) whose weighable data changes in their promotion file compete monthly for promotion consideration.


In-system supplemental consideration also applies to Airmen who test after initial selects have been made, deployed Airmen, or anyone who was unable to test during their normal testing window. The SNCO supplemental board is for those members promotion-eligible to E-7, E-8 and E-9. This board is held twice a year. SNCOs may request to meet the supplemental board if they believe they have a valid request according to Air Force Instruction 36-2502, Enlisted Airman Promotion/Demotion Programs, Table 2.5. With the exception of consideration for a missing Static Close Out Date evaluation, there are no automatic approvals for supplemental board consideration when an Airman's record did not meet a previous board for which they were eligible.

In-system supplemental releases are not conducted during July and August due to the system requirements needed to support the technical and staff sergeant promotion releases. Airmen who are eligible for these months will be considered in the September cycle. The in-system supplemental promotion schedule is available on myPers under “Enlisted” by clicking “Promotion.”

SNCO Promotion Board

The 19E9/chief master sergeant cycle was the first senior NCO promotion board focused strictly on performance after the elimination of promotion testing and points for decorations.
The board used the current scoring process as outlined in these infographics. When records were tied on the order of merit, the board used “Gray Zone Resolution,” as described in slide 4. (U.S. Air Force graphics by Kat Bailey)
