• The United States Army Sergeants Major Academy (USASMA) was founded in July 1972, and graduated its first students in 1973.
  • Since that time, USASMA has graduated more than 120,000 Soldiers from various Noncommissioned Officer Education System courses, and continually adapts to meet the needs of our nation's defense.

  • The Academy is headed by a three-star level nominative command sergeant major and is supported by a world-class staff and academic faculty.
  • USASMA creates all curricula for each level of the NCOES, and plays a key role in the education of all enlisted leaders from corporal to command sergeant major in the active Army, Army Reserve and Army National Guard.
  • More than 90% of Sergeants Major Course students graduate with a college degree. USASMA also trains NCOs of our sister services and global allies.
