Military Academy Nominations

Service Academy Congressional 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.

Members of Congress may nominate up to ten individuals for each vacant academy slot allotted to a congressional district. These nominations include appointments to four of the five U.S. service academies: the 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.

For more information, please review the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) Guide that my staff has prepared to help you navigate the process of applying for a nomination from the First District of Tennessee.

The deadline to apply is 11:59 pm on October 31, 2021.
