Are you ready to come aboard and save your space at Cal Maritime?


The New Student Guide: Saving Your Space is as Easy as 1-2-3!

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

  1. Your online or mailed non-refundable $500 deposit;
  2. The online Intent-to-Enroll form; and
  3. The online "StarRez" Housing License Agreement or optional Off-Campus Housing Petition. This is not required for Spring 2021 students in the Business Administration, Global Studies and Maritime Affairs, and Oceanography programs since courses in these programs will all be online for the Spring 2021 semester, though housing is available for those with no other housing options.

Get Started with the New Student Guide

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 the following dates to save your space.

  • Spring 2021 admitted students - Nov 15, 2020
  • Fall 2021 admitted students - May 1, 2021
