The Early Admission (EA) Option

Applicants from high school who consider Cal Maritime a top choice may use the Early Admission (EA) option. EA allows students who apply early to receive a decision on their application on December 15th - 1½ months before other applicants.

Candidates are reviewed based on their academic performance in classes as self-reported in the online admission application, their standardized test scores, and (for impacted majors) optional résumés we receive. Although EA applicants should consider Cal Maritime a top choice, the program does not ask students to rush their decision to attend if admitted. Students admitted under this plan will have the same deadline to commit to Cal Maritime as all other admitted students. That date is May 1st.

All of the following criteria must be met to be considered for the Early Admission program:

  • EA applicants must be applying as first-time freshmen. The program is not available to transfer students.
  • EA applicants must answer “Yes” to the Early Admission question on Cal Maritime’s CSUmentor online application.
  • The online application and application fee (or fee waiver) must be submitted between October 1st and October 31st. Optional résumés for impacted majors are due by November 30th.
  • EA applicants must take the SAT or ACT by the October testing dates.

The Early Admission process includes:

  • Applicants who are admitted under the Early Admission program will be notified on December 15th - 1 ½ months before regular admission applicants.
  • Admitted students to the Early Admission program will have the same May 1st deadline for committing to Cal Maritime as those admitted through the later, Regular Admission process.
  • Early Admission applicants not accepted for the EA program will be notified on December 15th that their applications will be re-reviewed through the Regular Admission program and receive their decision with the larger group on February 1st.
