Service 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.

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.

Each Member 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.

* You do not need to take both tests, but you must provide official copies of either your SAT or ACT scores. If you have already taken either examination, you should contact the College Entrance Examination Board for SAT scores, or ACT for ACT scores, and request that a copy of your scores be sent directly to the District Office of Congresswoman Escobar in El Paso using CODE 6078. If you have not yet taken these examinations, please list Office of Congresswoman Escobar as one of the recipients of your scores at that time.
