    Right now, I am a senior in high school, but I am looking to apply to West Point for the class of 2019. I will go to a civilian college this fall and then try to start at West Point the next year. For the application process, do I do it just like I was a senior in high school? Also, I filled out the West Point Questionaire and it filed me under class of 2018 because my graduation year is this year. Is that a problem?


    Thanks, Mark

    As a college freshman, the application is very similar. The only differences are that you have to send your college transcripts after your first and second semesters and you need to get 2 professor SOEs. You also have to fill out a "Supplemental Information Sheet". This is an area on your portal where you tell USMA what clubs, sports, or activities you are doing during your freshman year at college. I'm not sure about your Class of 2018 problem.

    Would this be your first time applying, or second?

    Because the application for 2018 is still open and you meet the age/graduation criteria, it automatically puts you into that group. Recommend emailing your RC and asking them to move it to 2019. You won't have full access to the application until the summer. You can prep and do the simple things like send your final transcripts this spring, make sure you have the contact information for your counselor and teachers for the SOEs, etc that way when you are off at college you don't have to work as hard to get those portions completed.
