Har­ris opens ap­pli­ca­tion for mil­i­tary ser­vice academy nom­i­na­tions

Record Observer - - School -

WASH­ING­TON — U.S. Rep. Andy Har­ris, R-Md.-1st, has an­nounced the U.S. Mil­i­tary Ser­vice Academies nom­i­na­tion ap­pli­ca­tion is now avail­able for those wish­ing to join the class of 2022.

Har­ris will nom­i­nate some of the finest young men and women from Mary­land’s First Con­gres­sional Dis­trict for ap­point­ments to the U.S. Mil­i­tary, Naval, Air Force and Mer­chant Marine academies.

The Coast Guard Academy does not re­quire a Con­gres­sional nom­i­na­tion, though Har­ris will rec­om­mend in­ter­ested ap­pli­cants on a case-by-case ba­sis.

Ad­mis­sion is based on SAT/ACT scores, class rank, phys­i­cal ap­ti­tude scores, ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties, lead­er­ship abil­ity, ath­letic abil­i­ties, med­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tions and a panel in­ter­view.

Academies ac­cept ap­pli­ca­tions on a rolling ba­sis be­gin­ning in Septem­ber.

Fi­nal ac­cep­tance also is con­tin­gent upon re­ceiv­ing a nom­i­na­tion from an au­tho­rized source, such as one’s con­gress­man or sen­a­tor.

The dead­line to ap­ply for a nom­i­na­tion from Har­ris is Oct. 30. All res­i­dents of the First Dis­trict be­tween the ages of 17 and 23 are en­cour­aged to ap­ply.

In­ter­views will be con­ducted by Har­ris’ Mil­i­tary Academy Re­view Board, which is made up of vet­er­ans and re­servists of the U.S. mil­i­tary. In­ter­views will be con­ducted in fall, and the ser­vice academies will be no­ti­fied of Har­ris’ nom­i­na­tions by Dec. 31.

Stu­dents can down­load the nom­i­na­tion ap­pli­ca­tion at https://har­ris.house. gov/ser­vices/mil­i­tary­a­cademy-nom­i­na­tions.
