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 
2027.  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 2 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.  We will accept applications with no SAT/ACT scores or scores past the 
two-year mark but candidates should inform the Fleet Coordinator as to why 
the tests were not able to be taken. 
       (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 level math and sciences. 
       (4) If schedule permits, applicants are encouraged to complete college 
courses that display current academic ability. 
    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). Demonstrated 
achievements should be included in each applicant's request for admissions. 
    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.  Waivers are considered on a case-by-case basis. 
    e.  We are seeking candidates with outstanding physical fitness.  In 
    addition to passing the Candidate Fitness Assessment in the USNA 
application, candidates need to have demonstrated the ability to pass the 
Naval Academy physical fitness requirements within the last year.  The USNA 
Physical Readiness Test standards (Minimum Passing Scores) are: 
       (1)  Push-ups (Two Minutes):  35 (Male); 20 (Female); 
       (2)  Front Plank:  1:45; and 
       (3)  1.5 Mile Run:  10:30 (Male); 12:40 (Female). 
    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 2027 is 31 December 2022.  The 
deadline for all completed application documents is 31 January 
2023.  Applicants are strongly encouraged to complete their application as 
soon as possible.  Packages completed before 31 January 2023 will be reviewed 
by the Admissions Board as soon as they are 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 https://www.usna.edu/Admissions/.  A follow-on e-mail 
back to the fleet applicant will provide them with a candidate number and 
instructions for completing the full application.  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 
281-1839 or siegfrie@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.
