Will NCOES waivers still be authorized under the new promotion system?

I'm currently deployed, will I still be able to get an NCOES waiver under the new system? How do I go about requesting a waiver like this?

Yes, WLC waivers for SSG remain unchanged. Commanders may request WLC waivers for deployed SGTs. If approved, the WLC waiver authorizes integration to the SSG recommended list and, if otherwise selected, promotion to SSG. The policy requires completion of WLC within 270 days of the Soldiers re-deployment. Failure to complete WLC within 270 days following re-deployment will result in either reduction to SGT or removal from the SSG recommended list–whichever may apply. Your unit S1 should know how to process requests for WLC waivers.
