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 allotted to their district. To request a Service Academy Nomination from our office, please complete the form below. Once you have completed the form below, you will receive the application. Best wishes to you as you pursue your goal of attending one of the U.S. Service Academies and serving our country.

My office is readily available to help answer any questions your students may have about receiving a Congressional Nomination to attend a Service Academy. All application materials are due Friday, November 3rd at 5:00 PM CST

For additional information, please contact my office by phone at (629)-223-6050 or by email at
