Like every university, Cal Maritime admits more students than it can accommodate. In order to reserve your space in the Fall 2021 enrolling class, you need complete the following steps:

  1. Your online or mailed non-refundable $500 deposit due by end of May 3, 2021, or within three weeks of the date of your acceptance, whichever is later. The deposit will be applied to your uniform and housing charges (or tuition if not living on-campus).  Email us if you're having financial difficulties and cannot pay the deposit at this time - admission@csum.edu
  2. The online Intent-to-Enroll Form due by end of May 3, 2021, or within three weeks of the date of your acceptance, whichever is later.
  3. The online "StarRez" Housing License Agreement or optional Off-Campus Housing Petition due by June 1, 2021. Star Rez is now accepting submissions from fall 2021 new students.   Campus housing will be available for all students.

The New Student Guide includes all the information you need, with online and printable forms (along with the $500 non-refundable deposit*) that must be submitted by May 3, 2021, or within three weeks of the date of your acceptance, whichever is later.

*Email us at admission@csum.edu  if you're having financial difficulties and cannot pay the $500 deposit. For any other enrollment questions, contact the Admissions Office at (707) 654-1330 or admission@csum.edu

Check Your Student Portal Email and PeopleSoft Student Center

Cal Maritime Student Portal image

We sent a message to e-mail address you listed in your application telling you how to access your campus e-mail account and student portal. Look for an email with the subject line "Your ID, Username, and passwords for Cal Maritime portal and e-mail." That email tells you your Cal Maritime email address, username, and how to set up your password. If you cannot find that email, your spam filter may be blocking it. If that's the case, give us a call or send an email to admission@csum.edu, and we can resend your credentials.

Once you find that email, go to www.csum.edu (or any Cal Maritime webpage) and click on "Login" along the top of your large screen or in the main menu icon in the upper corner of your cell phone screen . Once you reach the student portal (see above picture) you will need your user name and password when you access any of the systems listed on on the screen 
 
The access to your Cal Maritime email account is on the left side: "Office 365 Email." You should also take a look at your records in our computer system called "PeopleSoft -Student Systems." Inside PeopleSoft, look for "Student Center," which is how you can view or change your addresses, emails, phone numbers, view your course schedule, accept your financial aid offer, and more.

 

Add your Campus E-mail to your smartphone

The easiest way to access your campus e-mail is to add it as an e-mail account on your smartphone (iPhone or Android).
