    So I received the call from my MOC stating I have been offered an appointment to USNA, and that I should be getting the paperwork soon. Obviously I am thrilled!

    I do have a question though. I am a college student, and am currently enrolled for the spring semester. I haven't had to pay any dues yet (my first payment is due in February). Would it be feasible to unenroll from the University before payments are due, since my college courses do not transfer to the Naval Academy? The reason I would want to do this is because of monetary issues; we are struggling a little bit right now, and if I make these payments, it would hinder my brothers trip to Europe in which he is studying music over the summer; he is extremely gifted musically and I would not want this opportunity to not be the best it possibly could be.

    If I were to unenroll, would the Naval Academy withdraw its offer of appointment? The ideal situation would be to unenroll and work until I-Day and save as much money (I've been told extra money helps at USNA).

    Any insight would be fantastic! Thanks in advance.

    Your best route is to ask USNA. Also know the risks if you were to be medically dq because of an injury before I day you would not have a back up plan. I understand your reasoning but it is a big decision.

    Completely understand those risks, I guess it is just a different mindset.

    I agree your best move is to call admissions and explain the situation and emphasize that it is for family monetary reasons and you don't have to go into detail beyond that. I would think that there would be no repercussions as enlisted sailors come into the Academy with no prior months spent at school and the same goes for the candidate who goes to work right out of high school. But nobody here is in Admissions and all is a guess. Call them.

    However, be prepared to start a ground zero academically as a Plebe and not be allowed to validate any courses as the Plebe courses are based on a years worth of knowledge.
