In addition to being eligible to apply for an academy nomination from my office, I strongly encourage you to apply to both United States Senators and the Office of the Vice President.  It is also important for you to complete a requisite admissions application with the academy, or academies, to which you are applying.  You can contact each academy by using the below information:

United States Air Force Academy                     http://www.academyadmissions.com/

United States Merchant Marine Academy        http://www.usmma.edu/admissions/

United States Military Academy                         http://admissions.usma.edu/

United States Naval Academy                         http://www.usna.edu/Admissions/

If you are interested in attending the United States Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut, please visit http://www.uscga.edu/opportunity for more information.  Unlike the academies above, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy does not require a congressional nomination.

Please contact Pat Fitzgerald in my Dunn office at (910) 230-1910 with any questions or concerns regarding my U.S. Military Service Academy application process.
