Open University Procedures
Earn college credit without admission
Open University allows prospective students and community members to participate in regular university classes on a space available basis at The California Maritime Academy (Cal Maritime) without formal admission.
Classes taken through Open University at Cal Maritime may apply toward your professional skills, your personal interests, or a future degree.
Take Cal Maritime credit courses without being admitted to the University. No transcripts (unless enrolling in courses that have pre-requisites), applications, or other documentation are required.
Improve your grade point average. If you have been disqualified from Cal Maritime or denied admission because of a grade point deficiency, you can enroll through Open University and get your grade point average where you'd like it to be.
Start accumulating credits, which can apply toward your degree once you are admitted to Cal Maritime. A maximum of 24 semester units earned through Open University in a non-matriculated status may be applied toward a bachelor's degree.
Program Fees: The fee for Open University is $372 per unit.
