I have the honor and privilege to recommend some of Utah’s finest men and women to attend the United States Military Academies. Senator Mike Lee and I are teaming up to combine our Service Academy Nominations Process to better serve Utahns. Our 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 our office must meet the following eligibility requirements:
• 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 our 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 mour 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.
