In the interest of international and Navy-to-Navy relations, up to 60 students from certain foreign countries may be enrolled at the Academy. The Department of Defense selects and notifies the countries that may nominate candidates. Selection of nominees to attend the Academy is made by the Naval Academy International Admissions Board in late April.
If you are not an American citizen, completion of a Preliminary Application is not necessary. Information concerning application procedures for foreign nationals may be requested from the Naval Attaché at the U.S. Embassy in your home country.
