Nomination Application Request


Service Academy graduate have a five-year service obligation. See  Frequently Asked Question for Those Seeking a Service Academy Nomination.

NB:  Military Academy means West Point.  Use Service when not specifically referring to West Point.

I nominate candidates for appointment to four of the five U.S. Service Academies: U.S. Military Academy (USMA), West Point, NY; the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA), Annapolis, MD; the U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA), Colorado Springs, CO; and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA), Kings Point, NY.

The U.S. Coast Guard Academy (USCGA), New London, CT, unlike the other Academies, does not require a Congressional nomination.

Like all Members of Congress, I may make ten nominations for each vacant Department of Defense Academy (USMA, USNA, and USAFA) slot allotted to my district. I may make ten nominations to the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.

To request an Application for Service Academy Nomination from me, please submit the requested information that follows. Best wishes to you as you pursue your goal of attending one of the U.S. Service Academies and serving our country.
