ACADEMY Admissions

Admissions to a Service Academy

Whether you are hoping to attend the U.S. Military Academy (West Point), the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Air Force Academy, or the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, admissions is quite challenging and a bit different from the typical college admissions process.

We've compiled some resources here that we hope you will find helpful. This can be very overwhelming, so we encourage you to start early and keep in close contact with your counselor about this process.

If you are just beginning to consider a service academy, we recommend that you start by reading this article: http://www.military.com/join-armed-forces/us-military-academies-overview.html.

We also suggest that you visit this website for information:  http://serviceacademycoach.com/Congressional_Nomination.html
