Like every college, Cal Maritime admits more students than it can accommodate. The only way to guarantee your space is to submit the following items by May 1, 2018: 1) the non-refundable $500 deposit, (online or mailed), 2) the Admission Acknowledgment Form (online), 3) the printed medical forms, and 4) the online "StarRez" Housing License Agreement or optional Off-Campus Housing Petition available in March, 2018 through your student portal, MyCalMaritime.

The New Student Guide is a printable guide that includes all the information you need - with paper forms and web addresses leading to online forms that must be submitted by May 1, 2018 (along with the $500 non-refundable deposit) to save your space. After May 1, 2018 all spaces in your major may be filled because we admit more students than we have room for. This guide can answer many of your questions.

Cal Maritime Day is designed for you to look over the Academy from stem to stern.
While the event is not mandatory in any way, it's designed for both those who are still deciding where to attend next fall AND those who have already chosen Cal Maritime. We hope to see you there!
This program invites admitted students on Saturday, March 3, 2018 and
is designed for women (from admitted students to current cadets) interested in the international business and logistics, global studies, marine transportation, engineering, and engineering technology fields. Professionals from these industries will speak on topics important to the empowerment and success of our female cadets as they enter their careers. A description and online reservation form can be found at www.csum.edu/wml. One family member per student is also invited. The event is free for each admitted student and one guest. Sign up for your free tickets at www.csum.edu/wml.

Every high school student entering the California State University must demonstrate readiness for college level math and English or be placed in an extra preparatory course upon arrival. Your readiness in math and English can be demonstrated in a number of ways based on your test scores alone or your test scores in combination with high school courses and grades.
California residents who do not demonstrate math and/or English readiness must enroll in a preparatory "Early Start" course during the summer before they arrive and attempt to pass courses or they may not be allowed to enroll for any courses in the fall semester. These courses will be available around the state and online. Out-of-state residents unable to demonstrate math or English readiness will be highly encouraged to also enroll in local or online summer courses. Here are a few ways to demonstrate readiness:
More information on demonstrating English and math readiness as well as the Early Start program will be posted in the next few months.
Set up an appointment with your physician for a full examination. The forms your doctor needs to complete can be accessed by clicking here. These forms are due to our Health Center by May 1, 2018. But those who wish a priority medical review prior to May 1, 2018 may receive one if the medical forms are submitted by April 2, 2018 and no additional medical tests or documents are required. Remember that you cannot enroll unless you are medically cleared by Cal Maritime's Health Review Committee. In some cases, a medical clearance may limit enrollment to only certain majors to be explained in notifications by the Health Review Committee.
It is the policy of the California Maritime Academy to require all enrolled students to maintain Cal Maritime student health insurance or comparable private insurance. This is due to the special nature of the educational experience at the Academy, which includes an international training cruise or international study experience.
If you are currently NOT INSURED:
You will be automatically enrolled in the Cal Maritime insurance plan that meets all school requirements.
If you are CURRENTLY INSURED and wish to maintain your current insurance, you must:
Request a waiver from purchasing Cal Maritime's insurance plan by completing the online insurance waiver on the Student Health Services web site at http://www.csum.edu/web/health-services/required-health-insurance. The deadline to complete the online waiver from mandatory school health insurance has not be set yet, but it is usually in early July. Please note - It is the responsibility of the student to inform Cal Maritime when coverage changes after any waiver has been granted.
