U.S. Congressman Steve Chabot 1st District of Ohio

United States Military Academy Appointments

The United States Military Academies are all four-year liberal arts institutions with extremely competitive selection processes. The academies include the following: the Air Force Academy; the Naval Academy; the West Point Military Academy; the Coast Guard Academy; and the Merchant Marine Academy. A student who would like to attend one of these academies must apply directly to the academy and have a congressional nomination to be considered for admission.

Applicants must apply to their local congressional representative for a nomination to an academy. Congressman Chabot employs the competitive method of selection for academy nominees. This method allows the Congressman to nominate ten applicants in no specific order to each academy.

After the Congressman forwards the nominees to each military academy, the academies rank the respective nominees. Each academy selects the highest-ranked nominee and offers them an appointment. As long as there is a qualified applicant in the First District, Congressman Chabot is granted one appointment to each of the service academies annually.

Those students interested in an academy nomination should contact:
