Cadet Information

Incoming Freshmen

You have an exciting opportunity to participate in this program -- the Cadet-Community Connection -- designed to provide you with more support than you would find at any other college campus.  In turn, you will have the opportunity to become a voice for the California Maritime Academy in the community, offering your unique perspective on our unique campus.

During your first year at Cal Maritime, you will face many new challenges.  This program is designed to give you an opportunity to have a local "family" connection to help you negotiate these demands.  You will still live on campus, but during your free time, your Community Host will provide a break away from your commitments and responsibilities on campus, whether that means attending a Vallejo Admirals baseball game together, enjoying a home-cooked meal at your Host's home, or participating in another activity that meets your mutual interests.

How It Works

  • Submit an online application before the JULY 31st, 2015 deadline.
  • Attend Student Orientation -- August 2015 -- and get matched with your Community Host during a special presentation on campus.
  • Maintain contact with your Community Hosts during the school year, the extent of which will be mutually agreed upon between you and your Hosts.
