Academy Nominations

Georgia has a proud history of military service to this country, and I look forward to working with those who are interested in attending one of the United States Service Academies. With the assistance of my Military Academy Selection Board, I am honored to designate potential nominees using a competitive selection process for each of the academies. My office will submit nominations to each of the following academies every fall: United States Military Academy (West Point), United States Naval Academy, United States Air Force Academy, and United States Merchant Marine Academy.

Application Process

You are encouraged to visit the web sites for each academy to determine their minimum entrance requirements. Please note that in addition to applying to my office for nomination, applicants must also apply directly to their respective academy in order to receive an appointment. 

All service academies, other than the United States Coast Guard Academy, require a nomination from a qualified nominating source in addition to meeting the individual eligibility and entrance requirements for each respective academy. A Congressional nomination is not needed for the United States Coast Guard Academy. Please contact the academy directly at 1-800-883-8724 for more information.

Eligibility

Candidates seeking nomination and appointment to a service academy must:

  • Be at least 17 years of age and not older than 23 years of age on 1 July of the calendar year of entrance.
  • Be a United States citizen.
  • Be unmarried and have no legal obligation to support children or other dependents.
  • Female applicants cannot be expecting a child.

Nomination Review Process

The Service Academy Selection Board will review all completed applications for nomination received by the submission deadline. The most competitive candidates will be scheduled for interviews with the Service Academy Selection Board. 

Remember, you may apply for nomination to more than one service academy. You only need to submit one application package to my office and indicate in the appropriate section all service academies for which you are applying. 

Deadline

All applications for a nomination through my office for the graduating Class of 2023 are due by 5:00 PM on Wednesday, October 3rd, 2018. Applications received after the deadline will not be considered and no exceptions can be made. 

SAT and ACT scores will not be accepted after the deadline of October 3rd, 2018. If you choose to sit for the SAT/ACT in October, those scores will not reach our office in time for consideration.
