All Academies, except for the United States Coast Guard Academy, require a nomination from a qualified nominating source in addition to meeting the individual eligibility and entrance requirements for each respective academy.
Members of Congress may fill up to five vacancies at each of the Service Academies. For each vacancy, members of Congress may nominate up to 10 candidates who meet the eligibility requirements established by law. The student remains in one of the slots until that student graduates.

In addition, they may also be eligible for other nominating sources.
In order to be eligible for consideration for nomination through U.S. Senator Kay R. Hagan each applicant must be:

2. A United States citizen (prior to entering the academy).
