Navy releases active duty E-4, E-5, E-6 advancement quotas

The Navy has released the active duty advancement quotas for E-4 through E-6 for FY21, and there’s a lower likelihood of being promoted to those ranks this promotion cycle than during the spring cycle.

According to Navy Personnel Command, a total of 19,620 sailors are being considered for 5,824 E-4 spots — equating to a nearly 30 percent chance of being promoted. That’s a drop from the more than 36 percent chance of promotion and 6,745 spots during the spring advancement cycle.

Among current E-4s, there are a total of 33,118 sailors being considered for 5,637 E-5 spots. That translates to a promotion opprtunity of just over 17 percent this cycle, in comparison to the spring when there was a nearly 25 percent chance of being promoted. During the spring advancement cycle, there were a total of 8,711 E-5 spots available for promotion.

Additionally, there are 27,624 sailors being considered for just 3,029 E-6 spots, about an 11 percent chance E-5s being considered will be promoted. Those numbers are down slightly from the spring, when there was a more than 15 percent chance of being promoted to E-6. Additionally, there were a total of 4,165 spots available during the spring cycle.

Navy Personnel Command told Navy Times that the results would be released sometime before the Christmas holiday.
