Your journey begins with Us.
The Admissions Team is fortunate to be supported by volunteers from across the country. We call this group of individuals our “Field Force.” Some will spend time meeting with prospective cadets and families; others will attend a college fair or reception when the Admissions Team member is not available. We are very interested in helping you with your college search and answering any questions you have about West Point. The West Point Field Force is tasked to identify and mentor highly qualified high school students for the academy, helping to shape the next generation of our country’s leaders. Your Field Force representative is a local USMA representative in your area that can assist you and answer questions.
In addition to meeting with potential applicants, once a student decides to file an application for admission to the USMA, a West Point Field Force member is assigned
to assist that student to navigate the applications process - which is more challenging than a traditional college application. In order to be considered for acceptance, in addition
to meeting the qualifcations of admission, each student must receive a nomination from one of the following: The President or Vice President of the United States, one of the two Senators
from student's state of residence or the Congressional Representative in the district of the student's residence. The Field Force can also assist a student to navigate the nomination process.
Each year, thousands of high school students apply for admission to USMA, but only a few are accepted. Please look around on our website, learn about the admissions process, find your regional representative and if you are a high school junior or senior, contact the Field Force Member for your Congressional District.
