In order for a student to be considered for a military academy appointment, he or she must be recommended by an authorized nominating source. This could include the President, Vice President, a Member of the Senate or a Member of the House of Representatives.

Receiving a nomination is only the first step in the process of receiving an offer of appointment to a U.S. military service academy. Students must qualify academically and are subject to character, leadership physical fitness, medical fitness and motivation evaluations.
