I have the honor and privilege to recommend some of Utah's finest men and women to attend the United States Military Academies. My office is accepting applications from Utah students who are seeking a nomination to the United States Naval Academy, Air Force Academy, Merchant Marine Academy, or the Military Academy at West Point. The U.S. Coast Guard Academy does not require a congressional nomination. Appointments are made on the basis of a nationwide selection process.
Each applicant for a nomination from my office must meet the following eligibility requirements as of October 12th:
• Must be at least 17 years old, but not have passed the 23rd birthday on July 1 of the year they wish to be admitted (25 for the Merchant Marine Academy).
• Must be a U.S. Citizen, and a permanent resident of Utah.
• Must be unmarried, not pregnant, and have no legal obligation to support children or other dependents.
Academy and Nomination Procedures
Students interested a nomination should contact my Salt Lake City office in the spring of their junior year of high school to begin the application process. Prior to applying for a nomination from my office, you must start by contacting your academy or academies of choice to request a pre-candidate questionnaire. Once completed and returned, the academy will apprise you of any special physical, medical, or academic requirements particular to their institution.
