  • Cal Maritime offers licensed programs for the Third Mate or Third Assistant Engineer license of the United States Coast Guard. Licenses are issued at graduation upon successfully completing the appropriate baccalaureate degree and passing the United States Coast Guard licensing examination.
  • Admission into programs leading to licensure and credentialing does not guarantee that students will obtain a license or credential. Licensure and credentialing requirements are set by agencies that are not controlled by or affiliated with the CSU and requirements can change at any time. For example, licensure or credentialing requirements can include evidence of the right to work in the United States (e.g., social security number or tax payer identification number) or successfully passing a criminal background check. Students are responsible for determining whether they can meet licensure or credentialing requirements. The CSU will not refund tuition, fees, or any associated costs, to students who determine subsequent to admission that they cannot meet licensure or credentialing requirements. Information concerning licensure and credentialing requirements are available from the Coordinator of the STCW Program, Student Services Building, (707) 654-1297.
