Attention Military Candidates
If you are in the military when the application period opens and the test dates are established, apply on-line whether you know if you can attend or not. If you can’t attend during the regular exam period, you must request to take a Military Supplemental Exam. You must supply military orders to support your request to take the supplemental exam by the established deadline.
The supplemental exams will be given at the Academy within two years of the original filing deadline. More information will be provided when the application period opens.
