"Contrary to popular belief, USNA is not free." That is the basic message I got while scouring the Internet for information on USNA, tuition/fees-wise. Tuition and housing are paid for, but everything else (books, supplies, uniform items, etc) must be paid for by the individual. If I apply for scholarships, could they be directed to USNA as well? Also, I looked at the 2015-2016 Budget Book. Are we obligated to get everything in bulk or could we just get however much we want.....Please help. D: Thanks.
