The CSU Board of Trustees passed Executive Order (EO) 665 to provide remediation to admitted students determined not ready for college-level study. Remediation, or additional developmental coursework, improves students' skills to college entry level, allowing them to participate fully in rigorous collegiate discourse. (Note: Remediation does not count for baccalaureate degree credit.)
Students admitted to Cal Maritime as first-time freshmen who do not pass the EPT and/or ELM and did not earn approved exemptions must complete remediation. California residents may satisfy remediation by completing qualifying, three-unit CSU Early Start courses in summer before their first fall semester or any Recommended English and Math Proficiency Resources for Students Admitted to Cal Maritime. Out-of-state students may satisfy remediation through the latter option. (Note: Approximate prices and online availability may vary depending on the institution.)
Students may submit evidence they completed remediation to the Office of Admissions & Outreach before (or to the Office of the Registrar after) the start of their first fall semester at Cal Maritime to lift the remediation hold from their records. Students who do not satisfy remediation by the start of their second academic year risk academic disqualification, meaning they cannot continue as students at Cal Maritime.
