RMKS/1.  The U.S. Naval Academy (USNA) is seeking top performing, energetic 
male and female Sailors and Marines, active and reserve, who have 
demonstrated strong leadership, for admission to the Naval Academy Class of 
2021.  Among each USNA class is a corps of prior-enlisted Sailors and Marines 
who infuse peer-level Fleet experience into the Brigade of Midshipmen.  
Twenty years from now, these young men and women, from all walks of American 
life, will lead our Fleet.  Commanding Officers (CO) are encouraged to 
identify motivated enlisted personnel who meet the criteria and may be good 
candidates for selection to USNA.

2.  Successful candidates will be top-quality Sailors and Marines who fit the 
following profile:
    a.  Academics
        (1) Possess a strong high school grade point average indicating the 
potential to succeed at USNA.  Fleet applicants ranked in the top 40 percent 
of their high school class are typically considered competitive.
        (2) Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores taken within the last two 
years.  The SAT is a three-part test consisting of reading, math, and 
writing.  Applicants should aim to score above 500 in reading (verbal) and 
above 550 in math, with a combined minimum of 1050.  There is no recommended 
score for the writing component, but it may be used for evaluation purposes.  
For applicants who have taken the American College Test (ACT) within the last 
two years, scores of 22 in English and 24 in Math are recommended.  Potential 
candidates with SAT or ACT scores that are older than two years or below 
these guidelines are strongly encouraged to retake the test.  Standardized 
tests taken prior to January 31, 2017 will be considered for this admissions 
cycle.
        (3) Completed four years of Mathematics, including a strong 
foundation in Geometry, Algebra, and Trigonometry, four years of English, and 
one year of Chemistry.  Additionally, Physics, Calculus, History, and two 
years of a foreign language are strongly recommended.  Continued education 
since high school is vital; candidates are encouraged to strengthen their 
admission application with college courses in higher math and sciences.
    b.  Top performers who have demonstrated or possess strong leadership 
(e.g., past and present Command Junior Sailors/Bluejackets of the 
Quarter/Year, top 20 percent performers in "A" and "C" schools, class 
leaders, Honor Guard members, and community volunteers).
    c.  Good moral character and unquestionable loyalty to the United States, 
as determined by a command interview and military recommendations.
    d.  No record of disciplinary action under Article 15, Uniform Code of 
Military Justice, or conviction by civil court (except minor traffic 
violations) during the three years preceding application for admission.
    e.  Outstanding physical fitness, as determined by the candidate fitness 
assessment and recent command physical fitness assessments.
    f.  Must not have passed their 23rd birthday on 1 July of the year of 
admission to USNA.
    g.  Must not be married, pregnant, or have incurred obligations of 
parenthood.

3.  Candidates with superior academic performance and strong military 
backgrounds may receive direct appointments to USNA.  Top performers who need 
to strengthen their academic background may be selected to attend the Naval 
Academy Preparatory School (NAPS) in Newport, RI for one year and receive an 
appointment to USNA the following year.

4.  Personnel selected to attend USNA or NAPS must be medically qualified by 
the Department of Defense Medical Examination Review Board (DoDMERB) in order 
to be commissioned as an officer in the Navy or Marine Corps.  Once 
candidates complete 50 percent of the application, their name will be sent to 
DoDMERB for the physical and eye exams.  The candidate will be contacted by 
Concorde, the DoDMERB contractor, with information on where to receive the 
physical and eye exams.  The Service Member will be contacted by the USNA 
Fleet Coordinator with information on how to get the physical and eye exam 
completed at their own Military Treatment Facility as an alternative.  
Reference (a) provides medical standards.

5.  Up to 170 regular and reserve personnel may be appointed to USNA each 
year.  The deadline to apply to the Class of 2021 is December 31, 2016.  The 
deadline for all completed application documents is January 31, 2017.  
Packages completed before January 31, 2017 will be reviewed by the Admissions 
Board as soon as received.  Packages will not be reviewed without the CO's 
endorsement.  References (b) and (c) provide guidance.

6.  An applicant becomes an official candidate by submitting a preliminary 
application on-line at www.usna.edu/admissions.  After designation as a 
candidate, a candidate number, username, and password will be assigned and 
the candidate will be directed to complete the on-line application at 
www.usna.edu/candidateinformation.  USNA operates on a rolling admissions 
process and Fleet applicants are encouraged to complete their applications 
early to improve competitiveness.

7.  Direct application questions to the Fleet Liaison at (410) 293-1839/DSN 
281 or regino@usna.edu, or write to: U.S. Naval Academy, Candidate Guidance 
Office, Halsey Field House, 52 King George St, Annapolis, MD 21402-1318, 
Attn:  Fleet Liaison.

8.  Additional information about USNA may be obtained at

Applicants.php.
