Can I receive promotion points for completing only ALC phase 2?

I completed ALC phase 2 and I have the 1059. The class was added to my ERB by HRC and the 90 points to my 3355 PPW. I have not, however, completed ALC Phase 1 (though I am enrolled for OCT, if that makes any difference). My name was on the list for promotion to SSG this month. Is there an error in the system? I am personally aware of other Soldiers promoted under these circumstances. I did find a line (pg 50) in AR 600-8-19 that says no points will be awarded until all phases are complete, but that same section also talks about multiple ALCs and says ALC is worth 40 points. I'm wondering if there has been a MILPER message about this. I have been strongly advised that the promotion is correct by more than one source, though I can not find anything in writing to back up this claim. I am aware that is not how the system used to work and accept that my 1SG working to remove me from the list may be the right thing. I simply want to know for sure what is the right thing. It's also conceivable to me that I have been promoted in error, but that the promotion should stand, as is the case with my peers this month and untold number in previous months. I'm willing to accept that I be removed from the list if it's the right thing. Looking for a second opinion, is there something my 1SG has missed? Please advise... Read the Answer»
