8. United States Coast Guard Academy
New London, CT

The United States Coast Guard Academy (USCGA) is the smallest of the five federal service academies, providing an education to future Coast Guard officers.

Students, referred to as cadets, are officers-in-training earning a Bachelor of Science degree upon graduation in one of eight major fields of study.

Curriculum focuses on academics, physical fitness, character and leadership.

Unlike other federal academies, a congressional nomination is not necessary for admission. Cadets are required to adhere to USCGA’s “Honor Concept,” “Who lives here reveres honor, honors duty.”

Tuition is paid for by the U.S. Coast Guard in exchange for five years of active duty service upon graduation.
