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 
2022.  Among each USNA class is a corps of prior -enlisted Sailors and 
Marines who infuse peer-level Fleet experience into the Brigade of 
Midshipmen.  20 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.
       (3) Typically 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 U.S., 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 a strong military 
background 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 names will be sent to DoDMERB for the physical
and eye exams.  Candidates will be contacted by Concorde, the
DoDMERB contractor, with information on where to receive their
physical and eye exams.

5.  Up to 170 regular and reserve personnel may be appointed to USNA
each year.  The deadline to apply to the Class of 2022 is December
31, 2017.  The deadline for all completed application documents is
January 31, 2018.  Applicants are strongly encouraged to complete
their application as soon as possible.  Packages completed before
January 31, 2018, 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 online applications at www.usna.edu/candidateinformation.
USNA operates on a rolling admissions basis and Fleet applicants are
encouraged to complete their applications early to improve competitiveness.

7.  Direct application questions to the USNA Fleet Liaison at (410)
293-1839/DSN 281 or bland@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

9.  Released by the Honorable Richard V. Spencer, Secretary of the Navy.
