We are graduates of the United States Military Academy (USMA), parents of graduates, and parents of current Cadets who volunteer as members of the USMA Admissions Field Force of Oregon. We have successfully been through the process ourselves and we are here to mentor and assist Oregon high school students in the application process for the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY. We are Oregonians helping fellow Oregonians!
The 4,000 members of the Corps of Cadets represent every state in the U.S. and several foreign countries. About 1,200 New Cadets enter the Academy on Reception Day each year (about July 1st).
To be considered for admission to West Point, a candidate must be:
- at least 17 but not yet 23 years old on July 1st of the year of admission,
- be unmarried, and
- have no legal obligation to support children.
Candidates must be qualified academically, medically, and physically, and must receive a nomination from an approved source, such as a member of Congress.
