Transfers into Marine Transportation


Summary of Major 

Semester-by-Semester Curriculum - BS + USCG License

 

"Is there a minimum or maximum number of transfer units required for admission to this major?"

No, students with any number of college transfer units can be admitted. Note that only the first 70 community college semester units (105 quarter units) can be used toward the total needed for graduation. Any remaining community college units can fulfill specific requirments but not add to the total number of units required for graduation.
 

"What is the shortest amount of time it will take to complete this degree after transferring to Cal Maritime?

All transfer students should plan to spend at least four years at Cal Maritime completing this degree regardless of the number of college units transferred in from other institutions. Transferred courses can, however, reduce the number of courses required in individual semesters allowing time for study in remaining courses, for an academic minor, or for student employment.

"This is an 'impacted' major. How does that change the admission process?"

There is no grade point average (GPA) that guarantees admission.  Admission is competitive.  The applicants with the strongest applications will be offered the limited number of spaces for new students in the program each fall.
