Can a SGT who is deployed and has 41 months TIS and 6 months TIG attend the SSG promotion board at the 42/7 TIS/TIG mark with a WLC waiver and a TIS waiver, or is WLC the only waiverable element?
PLEASE HELP!! I have 2 days to figure this out!!! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com if you know the correct answer. I've been searching in all the regs and can't find anything that says a SGT can't receive 2 waivers to the SSG promo board while deployed!
I appreciate your quick response however, I have read the link that you attached previously to writing my own post. You see, what I read and what one of my S1 clerks are conflicting with each other. I was told all that you need is the 6 months TIG in order to go the SSG board. All you'll need to do is get a TIS waiver. So, again...can someone who has LESS than 46 months TIS attend a promotion board with a WLC waiver and a TIS waiver?

Wow, that's a pretty nasty way of asking for assistance.
I know you are very new to this community so I'll let it fly, but when you ask a question and it's answered with the exact information from HRC, I would only assume that it's correct; unless HRC is wrong.
When you say the HRC site and your S1 has conflicting information, what is your S1 saying? The HRC site states 46 months TIS and 5 months TIG with a waiver; down from 82 and 8. I don't understand what the confusion is.
I apologize if I came off that way. Believe me, that's not the way I meant it to sound. I'm just trying to do the right thing for my Soldiers. Its not so much as confusion, but rather just trying to get all the facts straight. My S-1 is saying that after 6 months TIG, any Soldier can attend the SSG board as long as they have a waiver. They insist that TIS is not a requirement as long as the waiver is approved all the way up. I do really appreciate any help that anyone provides. Thank you
That's funny because I've had several people try to argue you're S-1's point of view. I say take another look at AR 600-8-19. Maybe it's because there aren't very many E-5 ready to go to the E-6 Board with less than 46 months. Who knows?
I have this very same question. I am trying to find information about how to attend the SSG board with only 42 months TIS, 6 months TIG.
I agree with what has been said about AR 600-8-19 requiring 46 months TIS for board attendance, 48 for promotion, and I believe it says 10 months time-in-grade.
Here is the information I have: My first sergeant told me I would only need 6 months time-in-grade to attend the promotion board. He justified this by saying another of our staff sergeants, who arrived as a staff sergeant had only achieved 48 months TIS after she arrived.
Quite a while ago I scoured every Milper message relating to promotions I could find, to find supporting evidence of this. I remember reading a message that seemed to support E6 promotion on the basis of 30 months TIS, 5 months TIG, but I do not have time to find it again. It could be I was just confused by the complicated language of the milper message, but I have had a lot of NCO's tell me it is possible to get promoted to staff sergeant outside of the requirements listed in AR 600-8-19.
