Do you have articulation agreements with any community colleges?

While Cal Maritime accepts courses and transfer students from all accredited colleges, we currently have articulation agreements with the following community colleges for the majors listed after each:

  • City College of San Francisco - Business Administration / International Business & Logistics
  • College of the Redwoods (Eureka, CA) - Facilities Engineering Technology
  • Delta College (Stockton, CA) - Business Administration / International Business & Logistics
  • Diablo Valley College (Concord, CA) - Business Administration / International Business & Logistics
  • Napa Valley College - Business Administration / International Business & Logistics
  • Solano College (Fairfield, CA) - Business Administration / International Business & Logistics

Does Cal Maritime have a degree that guarantees it will only take 60 more semester units to finish my major once I have transferred?

Yes - Our BS in Business Administration / International Business and Logistics

  • Students who graduate from community colleges on this linked web page with a Business Administration Transfer AA Degree will only need to complete 60 more semester units at Cal Maritime to receive a BS in Business Administration / International Business and Logistics. Other AA degrees at those same community colleges do not carry the same benefit.

Transfer facts:

  • Cal Maritime accepts both lower and upper division transfer students
  • 33% of the entering class are transfer students
  • An Associate's Degree is not required for transferring.
  • Cal Maritime degrees requiring the U.S. Coast Guard license (marine transportation, marine engineering technology, and the licensed version of mechanical engineering) will require no less than four years to complete after entering Cal Maritime no matter how many transfer units or other advanced credit a student may be granted.  This is due to the specialized nature of coursework at Cal Maritime.
