    Hi I'm a sophomore in high school, a permanent resident and I am eligible for citizenship in 4-5 years and so I am planning on applying to SA during my sophomore year at college if I can get my citizenship within the next 8 years

    So I'm wondering

    1) if I pass CFA either at NASS (because that's the only summer seminar I'm eligible for if I get accepted, but I'm assuming CFAs for applications are generally same for both USNA and USMA) or during my senior year at high school, will that be valid for the next three years?

    And this isn't about CFA
    I wasn't sure whether to start a new thread but

    2) I'm a Korean and I think we can get dual citizenships now, but are you allowed to have dual citizenships to apply for SA because I saw in another thread about a person who has both Canadian and American citizenship and someone said you can't have security clearance until you renounce the Canadian citizenship

    Thanks so much

    Never mind about the citizenship part
    I found a thread in USNA about it

    The CFA is only good for the year you take it. Each time you apply, you'll have to retake it.

    You need to be a US citizen to apply. If you have dual citizenship, you'll have to renounce your Korean citizenship before applying for your security clearance (after being accepted).

    Would SAT and ACT be the same case like CFA and you have to take it again when you're applying a couple of years after you've taken the last test?
