NOMINATION TO THE U.S. NAVAL ACADEMY AND NAVAL ACADEMY PREPARATORY SCHOOL.//

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 
2020.  Among each entering 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 the Naval Academy.

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, 2016, will be considered for 
this admissions cycle.
        (3) Completed four years of high school 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, community volunteers).
    c.  Good moral character and unquestionable loyalty to the United States, 
as determined by 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 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.  Limited age waivers may be sought in accordance with 
section 553 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012.
    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 2020 is December 31, 2015.  The 
deadline for all completed application documents is January 31, 2016.  
Packages completed before January 31, 2016, 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.
