Three cadets waving from TSGB

Each year, alumni and parents across the country host student Send-Offs to welcome our incoming students and families to Cal Maritime. These informal gatherings are a chance to learn more about Cal Maritime and meet your fellow classmates.

This year's Send-Offs will take place in person.  Due to COVID-19, recommended protocols will be observed. Come enjoy food, fun and an opportunity to get to know other Cal Maritime parents and students, as well as local alumni.

Have any last-minute questions you want to ask before beginning your new adventure? Want to know the different types of career paths our graduates have taken? Want to work out the last nervous bugs before getting to campus? Then this is a not-to-be-missed event!

Also, we are offering a virtual session for students and parents who are unable to attend the regional events. A registration link and password will be provided 1-2 days prior to your area's Send-Off.


Please check back for dates if your location is not confirmed. If you have any questions, please contact Terrie McNamara Cosgrove, Director of Annual Giving and Alumni Relations, at
