Frequently Asked Questions

Please review our Frequently Asked Questions to have an enjoyable event.

How much is the registration fee and what does it cover?

The registration fee for the 35th Reunion is $87 per classmate. This registration fee covers the administrative cost associated with planning the reunion, but not limited to, ancillary tailgate costs, programs, usage fees, signage, printing, nametags and shuttle bus transportation during the weekend of the reunion. Help the reunion committee by making plans early. $87 for Early Birds before 6/5; $100 Regular for registration 6/5 to 8/1; $187 late registration begins 8/1. This fee also gets each REGISTERED classmate 1 emblazoned YETI Rambler Mug and other sundry SWAG.

Can I pay with cash or check?

No, to keep efficient processes, we are only accepting credit card transactions - cash and check are not accepted.

What is the processing fee?

The processing fee covers the credit card transaction fees.

When does registration close? What are the late registration fees?

The cut-off date for standard registration is 08/01/2022. After that date the registration fee will be $187 for classmates. Help out the reunion committee by making plans early! You have the option to make payments over time, the earlier the better!

What is the refund policy?

Refunds will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis minus the processing fees. Refund requests will be determined by the Reunion Committee.

Do I need a passport to gain access to the Yard?

In short, Yes! Residents from a state/territory that is compliant with REAL ID or non-compliant with REAL ID, but has received an extension may continue to use their current state/territory-issued driver’s licenses and identification cards, regardless of whether the card is REAL ID compliant or not, for accessing federal facilities, including military bases.  This is 'state-based' enforcement.  Only the state that issued the resident’s license/ID must be either compliant or have been granted an extension in order for that resident to use that license/ID for accessing Federal facilities.  The license/ID itself does not have to be REAL ID compliant until 'card-based' enforcement begins on October 1, 2020. Starting February 5, 2018, residents of American Samoa, which is not compliant with REAL ID and was not granted an extension, will no longer be allowed to use their American Samoa-issued driver’s licenses and identification cards to access federal facilities (including military bases), enter nuclear power plants or board commercial aircraft.  American Samoa residents will need to show an alternative form of identification that is acceptable to the facility.  Visitors should contact the facility to determine what, if any, identification is needed for access.

Where alternative forms of ID are required, typically, a government issued photo ID, such as a Passport or Passport Card, will suffice.

Where do I buy game tickets in the class block?

Purchase tickets in the Class Block directly from NAAA with the Promo Code: 1987

Can I park in The Yard?

Getting your vehicle onto, and parking in The Yard is very, very challenging at this point given the various ongoing construction projects underway.  We do NOT recommend planning on parking in The Yard.  Most access will be via foot at Gate 1 or via shuttle bus.

What if I'm married to a classmate, do we both have to pay the Classmate registration fee?

Yes. Since we base the registration fee on the number of classmates attending the reunion to cover the fixed costs for the entire weekend, we ask that all classmates pay their fee. Each classmate will need to create their own registration. This ensures each classmate has a proper name tag. Thank you!

How can families of fallen classmates register to attend the reunion?

The USNA Class of 1987 would be honored to have families of our fallen classmates join us for the weekend. Individual invitations have been sent to families. Please contact the Reunion Committee for more details.

Can I park at the stadium during game day?

In short, No. Parking will NOT be sold for the stadium (Blue and Gold) lots on game day. A season parking pass can be purchased by season ticket holders. Satellite parking is available at the Harry S Truman Park and Ride, located on Harry S Truman Parkway just off Riva Road. Shuttle service begins five (5) hours prior to the start of the game. Service continues throughout all games, ending approximately two (2) hours after each game's completion. The shuttle runs approximately every 20 minutes, and drops off and picks up at the Navy Ticket Office at the Class of 1953 Pavilion. Handicapped Parking: For access to handicapped parking, you must have a season parking pass. In order to obtain handicapped parking, one must purchase a season parking pass as well as have a state issued handicapped parking placard or license plate. Please see the NAAA Football Parking & Fan Guide at www.navysports.com.

Does the Stadium have a Clear Bag policy?

Yes! Navy has adopted A Clear Bag Policy already enacted by many schools around the nation. This policy was adopted to enhance public safety and make stadium access more efficient.

Permitted Items: Clear bags no larger than 12""X12""X6"", small clutch purses no larger than 4.5""X6.5"", blankets, seat cushions, diaper bags, umbrella strollers, and video cameras. All items will be inspected.

Prohibited Items: see the full list at navysports.com

Are funds available for classmates experiencing hardships?

Yes! Classmates experiencing financial hardships (due to COVID or other issues) who would like to attend the weekend, please contact the Reunion Committee. Anonymous classmates have put forward funds to support classmates in need.

If you see any of these committee members, please give them a huge thank you as they have given of their time and efforts to help make the event fun and enjoyable for everyone!
