Reasons for Military ADSEP

Your commander may initiate ADSEP for a variety of reasons, ranging from relatively minor to serious.

Some of the most common reasons for military ADSEP include:

  • Misconduct
  • Insubordination
  • Drug use
  • Poor performance
  • Failure to perform duties
  • Physical issues
  • Mental health problems
  • Failed rehabilitation

Note that in order to initiate ADSEP on grounds of misconduct, your commander will likely need to prove that you either committed serious misconduct or that a pattern of misconduct existed.

Understanding the ADSEP Process

An Administrative Separation (ADSEP) Board is your Commanding Officers attempt to relieve you of your service and give you a less-than-honorable discharge. Receiving Other-than-Honorable Discharge can carry harsh long term consequences that can be just a devastating as Dishonorable or Bad Conduct Discharge. The ADSEP process begins when your commander provides you with a written notice detailing the reason(s) for the administrative separation and a recommendation regarding how your service should be categorized.

Your service could be characterized in one of the following ways:

  • Honorable
  • General (“under honorable conditions”)
  • Other than honorable

If you receive a general or other than honorable discharge, it may jeopardize your right to receive certain veterans’ benefits. While it is not possible to receive a dishonorable discharge through the ADSEP process, a general or other than honorable discharge can have a number of negative impacts on your career, your reputation, and your future.
