About United States Military Academy Preparatory School

Soldiers who meet the basic eligibility requirements, have achieved SAT scores greater than 1000 or ACT composite score of 20 or higher and achieved average grades or better in their high school curriculum are especially encouraged to apply.

Each year about 200 enlisted soldiers are offered admission to the US Military Academy or the Preparatory School at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey. Although some soldiers are offered direct admission to West Point, most attend the Prep School first. All applications are made directly to West Point. Soldiers not directly admitted to West Point will be automatically considered for admission to the Prep School.

In addition to having a sincere interest in attending West Point and becoming an Army officer, applicants must be-

  • US citizens.
  • Unmarried with no legal obligation to support dependents.
  • Under 23 years of age prior to 1 July of the year entering USMA (under 22 prior to 1 July of the year entering the Prep School).
  • A high school graduate or have a General Education Development (GED) certificate.
  • Of high moral character.

Soldiers who meet the basic eligibility requirements, have achieved SAT scores greater than 1000 or ACT composite score of 20 or higher and achieved average grades or better in their high school curriculum are especially encouraged to apply. Soldiers must obtain an endorsement from their company or lowest-level unit commander. While this endorsement constitutes a nomination, soldiers are also strongly encouraged to obtain additional nominations from their congressional nomination sources.
