The California State University Maritime Academy has health requirements for all degree programs because every student participates in an international experience which may include at least one training cruise. In addition, degree programs for which maritime licensing is a graduation requirement have additional physical and mental health requirements as determined by the U.S. Coast Guard.
In this section you will find the required health forms to be completed by you and your licensed healthcare provider (must be a U.S. licensed medical professional MD, DO, PA, or NP) and returned to the Student Health Center by May 1, 2019:
- Health Report (7 pages total)
- Student to complete pages 1, 2, 5, 6, & 7
- Provider to complete pages 3 & 4; review and sign pages 2, 3 & 4
- Information About Meningococcal Disease and Immunization
- Notice of Privacy Practices
- Abridgement of Drug Testing Policiy
Your Health Report may affect your eligibility for enrollment in and completion of certain majors. Therefore, it should be fully completed and returned as soon as possible, but no later than May 1, 2019 or within two weeks after the date you receive your acceptance letter, whichever is later. Those who wish a priority medical review prior to May 1st may receive one if the forms are submitted by April 1st, 2019. Receipt of the Health Report by April 1st, 2019 will ensure a full refund of your deposit in the event you are found ineligible for enrollment in certain majors due to health reasons. Additional medical documentation may be requested based on information contained in your Health Report. If requested please send this information to the Student Health Center as soon as possible. Delays in submitting requested information or incomplete forms will hold up your registration for classes.

Mandatory Health Insurance Requirement- You must apply online for an insurance waiver (typically between early May to August). This form is NOT an insurance waiver nor is submitting a copy of an insurance card. Due to the special nature of the educational experience at the Academy, which includes a training cruise and/or international travel, students are required to be covered by health insurance which includes worldwide coverage. You will automatically be enrolled in, and charged for Cal Maritime's Health Insurance and Travel Assistance programs. If you have personal insurance that meets Cal Maritime's minimum requirements, you may be eligible for an annual insurance waiver. Please visit the Student Health Center website at http://www.csum.edu/web/health-services/required-health-insurance for the deadline date, more information about these specific requirements and to find the link to apply for the annual waiver when it opens.
It is the student's responsibility to inform Cal Maritime when his/her health coverage changes.
