About 21,000 active duty, and 2,900 SELRES and FTS Sailors advanced when the selection results were released.

Here are seven things Sailors need to know about advancements this cycle.

1. Command triads were notified May 20, 2015 via BUPERS Online of their Sailors' advancement results. Individual Sailor advancement results were posted on Navy Knowledge Online and BOL, May 21, 2015 as well as on All Hands Magazine.

2. Active duty advancement opportunity across the Navy remains near our 10-year average, but due to high retention will drop slightly from last cycle in all pay grades.

3. Individual active duty ratings continue to stabilize and get "healthier" - there are no ratings with "zero" advancement and the number of ratings with "100 percent" advancement has dropped this cycle.

4. Reserve advancement opportunity for E-4, E-5 and E-6 Sailors, both SELRES and FTS, saw an increase in all pay grades. Advancement for enlisted Reserve Sailors is based on current and planned billet openings in the fleet and work hand-in-hand with the Navy's efforts to balance the force.
