Military 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 Arrington 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 complete the form below. Best wishes to you as you pursue your goal of attending one of the U.S. Service Academies and serving our country.

Congressman Arrington will be hosting a U.S. Academy Forum open to all who are interested in learning about attending one of the U.S. Service Academies.

One event will be hosted in Abilene on April 21st at Cisco College from 10am to 12pm. The other will be in Lubbock on April 28th at the Science Spectrum from 10am to 12pm.

For more information, please contact a district office at 806-763-1611 or 325-675-9779.
