Course Repeats - Did You Reach the Course Repeat Limit?

University Undergraduate Catalog:  Course Repetition
Students may repeat courses only if they earned grades lower than a C. Up to 16 semester units may be repeated with "grade forgiveness." (Grade forgiveness is the circumstance in which the new grade replaces the former grade in terms of the calculation of the student's grade point average; although no longer used in the grade point average, the previous grade remains on the transcript.)  Students may repeat an individual course for grade forgiveness no more than two times. Grade forgiveness shall not be applicable to courses for which the original grade was the result of a finding of academic dishonesty.  Cal Maritime will permit students to repeat an additional 12 semester units with "grade averaging." In such instances the repeat grade shall not replace the original grade for grade point average calculation; instead both grades shall be calculated into the student's grade point average.

Students: Send an email to registrar@csum.edu from your university email account to request to add a course(s) you wish to repeat this term.  Petition must include (1) student name; (2) student Id; (3) course information - course number, course title, permission number; (4) major; (5) class of; (6) provide your strategy for successfully completing the course with a passing grade.  This informaton must be received on or before the last day of the add/drop period. For Spring 2015 Registration, Course Repeat Petitions will require the support and approval of the student's academic advisor and department chair.  (updated 09/05/2014)


New Online Form:  CMA Course Equivalency Request Form
Students enrolled at the California Maritime Academy, or on a temporary leave, may take course(s) at another regionally-accredited college if the student finds an equivalent course, and approval by Cal Maritime is made prior to enrolling in the course. Students may be expected to provide a syllabus for the equivalent course, and other information about the course, if needed, prior to the approval process.  The equivalent course must carry equal or greater unit value to the course offered at Cal Maritime. The student must have an official transcript sent to the CMA Office of the Registrar upon completion of the course, regardless of the grade earned. Grades earned in transferable courses completed at other colleges are not used in calculating the campus cumulative grade point average at Cal Maritime, but are included in the student's overall cumulative grade point average. (updated 06/05/2014)

New Students Registration Period: June 18 to July 2, 2014
To ensure a smooth transition to the California Maritime Academy, new students will be pre-registered for their first term courses prescribed by their Class of 2018 Curriculum Sheet.   Between June 18 to July 3, 2014, new students will be able to view their class schedule.  More information will follow on how to add, drop, swap, and waitlist for courses.  (updated 05/23/2014)


Cal Maritime will launch its first Summer Term in 2015
During the Spring 2013 term, President Cropper approved a recommendation from the Financial Aid Task Force to implement a Summer Term 2015 as efforts to support continual enrollment growth, compliance with federal and state regulations, and to offer courses year-round.  The Summer Term Task Force, consisting of representatives from the division of academic affairs, student affairs, and business affairs met throughout the Fall 2013 term to plan the implementation.  The first Summer Term will start in 2015.
