US Military Academy at West Point/Question about letters,


I am aware that I need a letter from my Math and Science teachers; however I have no math teacher this semester. But I do have an engineering teacher, would a letter from him be ok?

It's good to hear from you Noel. Thanks for your interest in West Point.

All in all it would be better to submit a letter from a Math teacher.  Maybe you could get one from a prior year in high school.  If that doesn't work, I would suggest that you contact Admissions directly (845-938-4041) and connect with your Regional Admissions Team.  You can explain your unique situation with them and get their specific recommendation on letter submission.

Good luck to you in your quest.

Best Regards,

I can answer questions about admissions to West Point; about the history of West Point; about how to travel to West Point, where to eat, where to stay, etc.; and about West Point`s alumni organization, the West Point Association of Graduates.


I am a 1970 Graduate of West Point. I served six years on active duty and another 8 years in the active reserve. I have been actively involved as a Field Admissions Representative for over 20 years and have participated on my Congressman's Academy Selection Panel for over 25 years. I am actively involved in West Point Alumni affairs, serving in roles both with the West Point Association of Graduates and the local alumni chapter in Annapolis, MD. I also have two sons who graduated from West Point in 1995 and 2001. Both are veterans of the Iraq War and Afghanistan War. The 1995 Grad continues to serve on Active Duty in the Army.
