Please review the Membership Eligibility and Categories if you haven't already done so and do not attempt to join us if you are not eligible. All applications to join USNA Out are carefully verified:
  • Alumni: we use the Register of Alumni produced by the Naval Academy Alumni Association.
  • Faculty/Staff: we are pretty good at our sleuthing.
  • Midshipmen: if we haven't already met you at a USNA Out/spectrum event, we most frequently use Facebook to confirm your status. If you are not on Facebook, you are to be highly commended, but we may need to have a short exchange of emails to confirm you.
  • Parents: in one of the “comments” boxes in the application, please provide us with name of your qualifying Midshipman/former Midshipman and relate your interest in USNA Out.


  • After you submit your application here, you will be sent an email to the address which you have provided confirming we received your application. After we are able to verify that you are eligible for membership, you will be sent a second email with instructions on how to log into the site.

    If you do not receive an email from us immediately after you hit the “Create new account” button, please check your spam filter for a message from <web.admin@usnaout.org>.
