How is Open University different than attending Cal Maritime as a matriculated student (via the full admission process)?

You can only register after the first day of classes –selecting from courses that remain open. You can only register for a maximum of 24 units at Cal Maritime through Open University. Financial aid is not available

Open University - Description

The Open University program allows non-matriculated students the opportunity to enroll in one or more courses each academic term without formal admittance to Cal Maritime. Students pay for courses through the Extended Learning department, on a per-unit basis, and are subject to space availability and enrollment priority policies. Open University participants can receive credit in lower and/or upper division course work, for a maximum of 24 semester units.

Course prerequisites must be completed prior to enrollment. An academic transcript indicating successful completion of course prerequisites must be presented to the Student Records Office at the time of application. All Open University participants must adhere to the college's academic policies.

The tuition fee for both in-state and out-of-state students is currently $372 per unit. Please check with the Business Office for adjustments and/or refund policy. Health, medical, and food services are available at additional cost.

Open University students will be expected to adhere to a dress code while attending classes on campus, which consists of a collared shirt, long pants (or skirt/dress for women), and covered shoes. Students will not be permitted to class wearing shorts, tee shirts, sandals, or similar inappropriate attire.

  • If registering for courses in person, submit completed forms to the Student Records Office for space availability and assessment of course units.

If registering for courses by mail or fax, send completed forms to the Student Records Office. Student will then be directed to make an online payment via Cash Net.
