I intended to submit my application for the Vice Presidential Nomination this week. I realize this is late in the process, but I have already secured three other nominations, one of which is a principal, so I was going to complete it solely because I marked that I would on my other nomination applications, and on the off chance that another nomination would actually help me. However, with the recent change of administration, I can no longer find the application on the White House website. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks!

If you already have a principal nomination then why apply? You have to be offered an appointment if you meet minimum requirements. I'm guessing that if you have three nominations that you meet those minimum requirements.

Does someone have an answer regardless? This is quite intriguing actually.

Just keep checking, and ensure your cache is cleared. I am sure they are still updating whitehouse.gov

Deadline is 31 Jan, yes?

@Capt MJ Yes, the deadline is 31 Jan. I'll try that and see if it works.
@HardWorker I put on my application to my MOC that I was applying for the VP nomination as well, and don't want to have given false information by not applying.

My son is having this issue as well. He applied to both USNA and USAFA. He received a nomination to USAFA last Friday. He has been attempting to apply for the VP Nomination for Navy the last few days. (Yes, a long shot but wanted to apply to every available resource. )

Sounds familiar. My DS received three MoC nominations to the USAFA in mid-Dec, but none to the USNA. So, he was able to submit the VP Nomination application in late-Dec. I'm not sure how it will work now that we have a new VP. I guess his team (or the SA) will select from the list. The odds are greatly against us as I am sure there are thousands of applications in that bucket for 5 or so slots. Good Luck ! :)

There is nothing listed under the Service Academy/Nominations tab to submit on the White House website. It's blank. Maybe they are not taken the applications until January 31st?

Anyone else have any luck with the vp nomination? Son is still trying to access the application. Hopefully the website will be updated with the new administration information prior to Jan. 31.
