Service Academy Nomination

The honor of attending a service academy comes with the obligation and commitment to serve in the military for a minimum of five years upon graduation.

Members of Congress may 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 fifth service academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy (USCGA) , New London, CT, does not require a congressional nomination for appointment.

Each Member may nominate up to ten individuals for each vacant academy slot alloted allotted to our district. To request a Military Academy Nomination from our office, please complete the form below.
