Military Academy Nominations
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. For more information, please review the page of Frequently Asked Questions for those seeking a Service Academy Nomination.
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
- U.S. Naval Academy (USNA), Annapolis, MD
- U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA), Colorado Springs, CO
- 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.
My office may nominate up to ten individuals for each vacant academy slot alloted to our district. To request an application to be considered for a Service Academy Nomination from our office, please complete the form below.
If you are a high school senior or college student and interested in attending a service academy and have not yet applied for admission, you should apply at this time. After you apply for admission, it will be necessary for you to complete a candidate file for my office in order to receive a Congressional nomination required for appointment. Completed applications for my office are due no later than October 23, 2020.
My application process is open each year from June until October. You may request an application from my office any time after June 1st of the year prior to when you wish to attend a Military Academy. Best wishes to you as you pursue your goal of attending one of the U.S. Service Academies and serving our country.
SPECIAL UPDATE IN LIGHT OF COVID-19:
Due to current safety restrictions from the state and from our Service Academies, we have had to cancel our annual Service Academy Day that was scheduled for Saturday, September 12, 2020. However, my office will continue to be available for any and all questions you may have this fall. Feel free to call my Tifton office at 229-396-5175, and we will work with each of the Academies to get any information needed.
