Military Academy Nominations
Please review the page of Frequently Asked Questions for those seeking a Military Academy Nomination before you begin your application process.
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 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 McEachin may nominate up to ten individuals for each vacant academy slot allotted to our district. Please complete the form below and submit supporting documents to apply for consideration. Use this checklist to assist you in the application process. The application opens every year on the second Tuesday in April and closes on the first Friday in November. Best wishes to you as you pursue your goal of attending one of the U.S. Service Academies and serving our country.
