As a United States Senator, Senator Susan Collins takes great pride in the opportunity to nominate students from Maine to the United States Service Academies.

To apply you must be:

An unmarried citizen of the United States with no dependents and;

At least 17 years old but not past your 23rd birthday on the first of July of the year you wish to be admitted and;

A resident of Maine. You, or your parents, must claim Maine as your primary state of residence.‚Äč

And do these two things:

Contact the academy directly to open a pre-candidate file.

Apply for a nomination at the same time that you apply for admission to an academy. Nomination applications can be submitted now and must be completed and received in my office no later than 5 PM, October 30th. 

If you have any questions about the nomination application process, please contact Karen Staples, my Nominations Coordinator at or 207-784-6969.
