To be considered for a service academy nomination, all applicants must be a resident of Alabama and complete the required ACT or SAT exams, a letter of recommendation, an official school transcript, a qualifying medical examination, and a completed application form – which can be found here.

Although Senator Shelby has made the nominations it is now up to the Naval Academy to make the final decision.
