Federal service academies are not for everyone but we encourage those students looking to serve their country and accept a demanding academic schedule to apply. Like all federal service academies, there is no application fee for USMMA.


Our rigorous four-year academic program is highlighted by the Academy’s Sea Year experience. Through this unique program, every student gains real-world leadership experience working aboard commercial and military ships sailing to ports around the world during three academic terms. Our students pursue a degree in one of five majors offered through two academic departments: Marine Engineering and Marine Transportation.

Graduates of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy earn a Bachelor of Science degree, a U.S. Coast Guard license, and a commission in the U.S. armed forces. Our graduates have an option to work as ship’s officers in the U.S. maritime industry or serve as commissioned officers on active duty in any branch of service.


More information about the Academy can be found here. The USMMA’s digital viewbook highlights Midshipman life, sports, sailing, academic programs, the unique year at sea training, and more.


Please contact CDR Mike Bedryk, USMS, our Director of Admissions, with any further questions.


We look forward to seeing you!
