At Cal Maritime you are more than a student, you are also a cadet.

Female Cadets Since 1929, Cal Maritime has combined the roles of student, leader, athlete, and teammate into what we know today as a cadet. Cadets make a difference on our campus and lead one another from the first day they arrive. Cadets realize they are part of something bigger and strive to live up to our 90 years of history. Being a cadet is not easy, but it is the challenge that makes our graduates second to none. 

Some of the more material parts of being a cadet include adhering to shared uniform and grooming standards, living by our core values, punctuality, & supporting shipmates. 

Cadet is more than a title at Cal Maritime. It represents our ethos and commitment to excellence.
