The honor to serve the United States

Each year, I have the privilege of nominating qualified Pennsylvania students to the United States Service Academies. This page contains detailed information about the nomination and application process. If the following information doesn't answer all of your questions, please contact my office at

The deadline to apply for a 2023 Service Academy nomination from Senator Casey has passed. We can no longer accept applications. Please contact your Member of Congress for information regarding their process and deadline. Our application process for 2024 will start in March of 2023.

You will be able to check the status of your application here.

The congressional nomination process is very competitive and one that our Service Academy Selection Panel and I take very seriously. Please understand that if you do not receive a nomination from my office it does not necessarily mean you do not meet academy standards. Rather, it likely reflects the high caliber of candidates who applied for a very limited number of nominations.

I commend you on your desire to serve our nation as an officer in the United States Armed Forces and wish you every success in your pursuit of an appointment to a service academy. If you have any questions regarding the application process, please contact my office by email at Additionally, please review the these Frequently Asked Questions.
