The US Coast Guard Academy is one of the five federal service academies. Located in New London, CT, the USCG Academy's mission is to produce leaders of character for service to the nation. About 300 high school graduates enroll annually, leaving four years later with a Bachelor of Science degree and commission as an Ensign.
The USCG Academy is one of the top ten academic experiences in America (Princeton Review 2003). Graduates experience much more than intellectual growth. The opportunity to develop physically, morally, and spiritually set the Academy apart. Two-thirds typically graduate in technical majors, which include Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Operations Research and Computer Analysis, and Marine Environmental Science. Over sixty percent compete in Division I and III intercollegiate sports.
The USCG Academy is tuition free. Cadets also earn a modest pay-check. Graduates are obligated to serve for five years upon graduation.
How to Apply
