Receiving a congressional nomination is required for admission but does not guarantee admission to an academy. Academy admissions offices evaluate each candidate's high school record, class rank, standardized test scores, extracurricular activities, fitness exam and moral character before making their selections.

Members of Congress submit nominations every year, and additional information can be obtained on Congressman Carson's website at www.carson.house.gov or by contacting his Indianapolis office at 317-283-6516.
