Uniform Initial Issue

Your Uniform Initial Issue contains all the uniform clothing and accessories that you will need as a new cadet at Cal Maritime. The Uniform Initial Issue contains a limited quantity of each uniform set. You are encouraged to purchase more items for replacement or as needed. The Uniform Initial Issue will be issued to you on Move-In Day during Orientation Week at a specific allotted time.

In order to ensure that your uniforms are ready when you arrive for Orientation Week you must submit your Uniform Sizing Form online by July 31, 2024. This gives us enough time to order your correct sizes by August. Please see our Measurement Guide for instructions and tips on how to take your measurements, or you may see a professional tailor for help. Enter your measurements on the Uniform Sizing Form webpage by July 31.

Below is a list of uniform items you will receive as part of the Uniform Initial Issue. Depending on your major you may receive all or some of these items. They will be issued to you at different points during your first Fall semester, as needed.
