Minimum Transfer Admission Requirements


Cal Maritime accepts both lower division (less than 60 CSU-transferable units) and upper division (more than 60 CSU-transferable units) transfer students. Due to the specialized nature of coursework at Cal Maritime, several majors require a four-year commitment of study regardless of previous academic coursework completed. Therefore, students are encouraged to transfer to Cal Maritime as early as possible.
