how long does it take to reach O-4 Lieutenant Commander in the US Navy?

as a surface warfare officer

Are you a SWO? There is a great tool on the PERS-41 web page that specifically creates your career progression. But, in a short explanation... 0-1 to 0-2 occurs on the exact day of your commissioning two years after (so, if you are commissioned in May 09, you put on LTJG in May 2011) 0-2 to 0-3 is another two years on the date of commissioning (May 2011, you put on LT May 2013) 0-3 to 0-4 is pretty automatic in the SWO world because of the attrition rate, but the time between is then divided into "zones". Pre-look or early zone occurs four years after you promote to 0-3 (so, for above example 2017). However, the average for making LCDR occurs "in zone" at around the five year mark (2018). "Out of zone" or your "third look" occurs around the sixth year (2019). So, the average for LCDR is 9 years (for early) and 10 years for in zone.

10-12 years ish. DH is putting it on in April.

Anywhere from 8 to 12 years. Averaging from 10 to 12 years.

It should take about 10 years, provided that one gets promoted to LtJg, and Lt, on time.

I'd like to know too. I leave for Naval OCS at the end of this month and I am also doing SWO.

12 to 15 years.
