Naval Academy students are officers in training and are referred to as midshipmen. The first year students are called plebes. Students receive full tuition to the academy with service time to the Navy after graduation. Service time varies depending on the type of specialty the student has selected. Pilots require a longer service time than engineering students. Students must apply to the Naval Academy as well as receive a nomination from a member of Congress (or be a child of a Medal of Honor recipient). Upon graduation from the Naval Academy, students are commissioned as ensigns in the Navy or second lieutenants in the Marines.

It is the second oldest of the five service academies and provides higher education and training for officers for the United States Navy and United States Marine Corps. The establishment of the Naval Academy replaced the Philadelphia Naval Asylum in Philadelphia that was the first naval academy from 1834 to 1845. There are currently 4,576 students at the Naval Academy. The students at the Naval Academy receive a bachelor of science along with their commission upon graduation.
