Are you Ready to Come Aboard and Save Your Space at

Cal Maritime? It's as Easy as 1, 2, 3, 4

Like every college, Cal Maritime admits more students than it can accommodate. The only way to guarantee your space is to submit the following items by May 1, 2018: 1) the non-refundable $500 deposit, (online or mailed), 2) the Admission Acknowledgment Form (online), 3) the printed medical forms*, and 4) the online "StarRez" Housing License Agreement or optional Off-Campus Housing Petition available through your student portal, MyCalMaritime.

Click here if you are ready to get started or just want to find out more about what is required and due dates for each item.

Students who submit the required items after May 1 may have their enrollment denied and deposit returned if all spaces in your major have been filled by those who submitted the four required items by the May 1 deadline

* Remember, your physician must fill out and sign parts of the medical forms. This means you must request a doctor's appointment far enough in advance to send us the completed, signed forms by May 1.


View or Print the New Student Guide Mentioned in Your Acceptance Letter


The New Student Guide is a printable guide that includes all the information you need with online form web addresses and paper forms that must be submitted by May 1, 2017 (along with the $500 non-refundable deposit) to save your space. After May 1, 2017 all spaces in your major may be filled. This guide can answer many of your questions. For any enrollment questions contact the Office of Admission at 707-654-1330

Check your "To Do" List in PeopleSoft 

You received access to your campus e-mail account and student portal soon after you applied for admission.

You may have "to do" items from the Financial Aid Office that need to be done before they can complete your financial aid offer.  All the items you still need to send the Admission Office are also in your "to do" list.  Once those items are completed or received, they drop off your list.  Click here to see an instructional page on how to reach your "to do" list and how to find out the details of each item.

Add your Campus E-Mail to your Smart Phone

About two weeks after you applied for admission, you received access to your campus e-mail account which is how we will officially communicate with you.  The easiest way to access your campus e-mail is to add it as an e-mail account on your smart phone (iPhone or Android). To view instructions for adding your campus e-mail to your Smart Phone, refer to the first e-mail we sent to your Cal Maritime Account with the subject line "Welcome to your new Cal Maritime email account."



You May Need to Take
the English (EPT) and Math (ELM) Proficiency Tests 

(Required for Some - Read to see if you are waived from this requirement)

Demonstrating English and Math Proficiency is required for all entering CSU students at all CSU campuses, from Cal Maritime to Cal Poly to San Jose State to San Diego State. This is a great time to figure out how you will demonstrate YOUR proficiency in math and English. One way to do this is to sign up to take the CSU college placement exams called the ELM (math) and EPT (English) offered in February, March, and April. If you wait until later in the spring to take these exams, you may have to take summer courses and may even be prevented from registering for fall college courses

Scores on Other Tests or Some College Courses May Show Proficiency and Eliminate the Need to Take the ELM or EPT Tests.

You may be able to avoid taking the placement exams by showing proficiency in other ways. You can see all the items that waive the 

You would be waived from needing the examinations at any CSU campus if:

  • You meet the minimum SAT or ACT score
  • You meet the minimum EAP (Early Assessment Program) score
  • You have taken and passed a qualifying college English course and/or qualifying college math course
  • Click the links above for additional ways to be waived from taking the tests

If you are not waived from needing the placement exams by one of the methods above, then you should take the ELM and/or EPT at any CSU campus testing site (or arranged testing site for out-of-state students) between now and April. There is one test date each month in February, March and April at most testing sites. Here is a link to the testing dates and sites: http://www.ets.org/csu/test_administration/dates.(note that 2017 testing dates will not be listed until January 1)



Early Start Program 

California residents who do not pass either of these two tests (ELM and EPT) must enroll in and complete approved summer courses or they cannot enroll for any courses in the fall semester.  For more information see our Early Start page.





Set Up Your Medical Exam and Fill Out the Medical Forms

Set up an appointment with your physician for a full examination. The forms your doctor needs to complete can be accessed by clicking hereThese forms are due to our Health Center by May 1, 2017. But those who wish a priority medical review prior to May 2, 2016 may receive one if the medical forms are submitted by April 1, 2017 and no additional medical tests or documents are required. Remember that you cannot enroll unless you are medically cleared by Cal Maritime's Health Review Committee. In some cases, a medical clearance may limit enrollment to only certain majors to be explained in notifications by the Health Review Committee.







About the Mandatory Health Insurance Requirement

It is the policy of the California Maritime Academy to require all enrolled students to maintain Cal Maritime student health insurance or comparable private insurance.  This is due to the special nature of the educational experience at the Academy, which includes an international training cruise or international study experience.

If you are currently NOT INSURED:
You will be automatically enrolled in the Cal Maritime insurance plan that meets all school requirements.

If you are CURRENTLY INSURED and wish to maintain your current insurance, you must:
Request a waiver from purchasing Cal Maritime's insurance plan by completing the online insurance waiver on the Student Health Services web site at http://www.csum.edu/web/health-services/required-health-insurance.  The deadline to complete the online waiver from mandatory school health insurance has not be set yet, but it is usually in early July. Please note - It is the responsibility of the student to inform Cal Maritime when coverage changes after any waiver has been granted.
