Service 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 Military 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; 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.
Congressman Murphy may nominate up to ten individuals for each vacant academy slot allotted to our district. To request a Military Academy Nomination from our office, please download our Service Academy Nomination Application and mail it to our District Office. Best wishes to you as you pursue your goal of attending one of the U.S. Service Academies and serving our country.
In lieu of an in-person Service Academy Day due to COVID-19 precautions, applicants can learn more about the academies by reading a comprehensive PowerPoint Congressman Murphy has compiled.
The deadline to apply is October 1, 2021.
