Welcome Keelhauler Families and Friends!

We are delighted that you and your cadet have chosen to move forward with pursuing their education at Cal Maritime. Welcome!!

We believe that orientation is just as much for parents and families, as it is for our incoming cadets. We are, once again, excited to invite you to our picturesque campus to move in your cadet and meet cadet leaders who are working hard to receive their newest shipmates. Staff and faculty are planning an immersive orientation program with steady support from campus leadership.

Updated schedule of sessions

Cal Maritime is hosting live virtual orientation sessions via Zoom on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. PST starting Thursday, July 20, 2023. These live sessions will continue throughout the month of August and will give our staff and university leadership an opportunity to provide our Keelhauler Families with detailed information on important topics such as: financial aid, fees, housing and residential life, dining services, campus life, Corps of Cadets leadership, and more. Please mark your calendar for this virtual engagement with campus leadership.
