Get Started on Academy Nomination

It is extremely important that you begin the application process with the academies themselves. This action should be taken during the spring of your junior year in high school.

To initiate this process, please visit the academies’ websites: 

An application for nomination from my office must be completed and submitted by November 1st of your senior year in high school.

Nominations from my office are awarded on a strictly competitive basis which provides that the nominees compete among themselves for final appointment determined by the academies.

The academies take into consideration a nominee's academic record, extracurricular and athletic activities, physical aptitude, ACT and/or SAT scores, leadership ability and medical qualifications. Such facets of an applicant's record are also considered during the nomination selection process. No person will be offered admission if he or she does not meet the physical standards of the academy unless awarded a medical waiver by the academy.

Here’s what you need to know about applying for nomination from my office:
