DOD/OS RIN: 0790-AJ90 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: Service Academies 

The Department of Defense currently has three rules regarding entry into and management of Military Service Academies (32 CFR parts 217, 575, and 901). This rule will consolidate all of the Service Academies rules into one overarching rule at 32 CFR part 217. This rule was most recently updated December 31, 2015 (80 FR 81760), to revise and update policy guidance and oversight of the Military Service Academies. This rule will address the establishment and operation of the United States Military Academy, the United States Naval Academy, and the United States Air Force Academy. There will be no changes to the eligibility requirements or admission programs for the Military Academies. The consolidation will benefit the Department and the public by eliminating redundant and obsolete rules, while consolidating multiple source documents into one guiding principle that fully provides instruction on establishment and management of Academies, appointment, admission, and commissioning of cadets and midshipmen. The revision of 32 CFR part 217 supports a recommendation of the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force.
