U.S. Service Academy Nominations

Dear Friend, 

Do you have a child or know a student interested in applying to one of the United States Service Academies?

Between now and October 13, 2017 my office will be accepting applications from high school students and recent graduates seeking a service academy nomination. Being nominated is a significant honor and the application process is rigorous.

In order to provide students with information needed to apply for a service academy nomination, my staff will be on hand to answer questions at a series of information sessions at convenient locations across the state. These information sessions give prospective applicants and their families the opportunity to speak with representatives from each military service academy and in-state ROTC programs. It also allows applicants to speak to my staff and learn what is required to submit an application to my office.

Each academy prides itself on producing our nation's next generation of military leaders. Four of the five service academies--U.S. Military Academy (West Point), U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy, and U.S. Merchant Marine Academy--require a Congressional, Vice-Presidential, or service-connected nomination. The U.S. Coast Guard Academy does not require a nomination.

In the coming weeks, my staff will be holding U.S. service academy information sessions across the state. To find a session in your area, please visit my website for a list of locations and dates.

If you are unable to attend a service academy information session, I encourage you to visit the Academy Nominations page on my website for application deadlines and more information about the nomination process.

It’s an honor to serve you in Congress. Please tell me about the issues that matter most to you here.


United States Senator
