Needham, MA (PRWEB) September 20, 2013- CollegeWeekLive, the popular website where students connect with colleges online, today announced CollegeWeeklive Service Academy Day, a virtual college fair on Wednesday, Sept. 25 showcasing higher education opportunities at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in London, Conn., the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in King's Point, N.Y., the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., and the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, N.Y. The complimentary event, which will take place live online between 2 p.m. and 10 p.m. EDT, will provide an opportunity for students attending to learn more about the skills required to be admitted and excel at these higher education institutions, as well as the application process. Admission representatives and current Cadets from all five branches of the military will be available to answer questions. Live video presentations will cover college admissions topics.

The service academies are consistently ranked as some of the most respected academic institutions in the nation. The U.S. Military Academy was ranked seventh in Forbes' national college rankings in 2013 and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy is known for its rigorous academic program. The U.S. Naval Academy excels at the new rapidly growing field of cyber security, while the U.S. Air Force Academy boasts accessible professors trained at Ivy League institutions. There is no cost to attend a service academy because U.S. taxpayers provide tuition, room and board, books and fees. After graduation, students begin their active-duty military service.

USAA, which provides insurance, banking, investment and retirement products and services to 9.8 million members of the U.S. military and their families, is an exclusive presenting sponsor of CollegeWeeklive Service Academy Day and will be promoting the event on Facebook and on Twitter.
