Application Process For Service Academy Nominations Now Open

Aug 1, 2014 | Press Releases

Applications for Nominations to Service Academies Due September 3

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) invites Florida students who wish to be nominated for a service academy to apply using the process outlined on his website. The four service academies requiring a congressional nomination include the U.S. Military Academy, U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy and U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.

For those desiring admission in the fall of 2015, Rubio’s deadline for application is September 3, 2014. A nomination must be applied for and secured separate from the application process for the actual academy.  

“It is my honor to nominate young men and women throughout Florida who exhibit the necessary leadership, commitment and integrity required for acceptance into our U.S. service academies,” said Rubio. “I welcome all interested students to apply, and wish those applicants the best of luck in their pursuit of the top military training our nation has to offer.”

In addition to applying to your two U.S. senators, applicants are also encouraged to apply with their U.S. Representative. If you are unsure of your congressional district, visit

Please keep in mind that each Member of Congress is allowed a limited number of nominations per academy.
