The deadline for the FSA Summer Sea Term 2017 Scholarship has past (February 13, 2017).
Every year, the college works to hold down the total cost of summer sea term for cadet-students. Tuition and fees include:
Tuition for the credits earned
Food, provided by Chartwells
Maintenance of the ship, including crew, supplies, equipment, fuel and internet/email services
Cost of the plane for the change-out (billed separately if applicable)
International insurance (mandatory and billed separately)
Two Half Summer Sea Terms (A and B): It is SUNY Maritime College’s policy to assess students' full tuition and associated fees for each of the two half summer sea terms for those students who have been granted permission from the college to register for two half summer sea term academic courses (12 credits) in one summer. As this practice allows the respective student the ability to make-up summer sea term requirements by completing two half cruises in one year, the college will not trade or waive two half summer sea terms cruises for a full summer sea term cruise.
Repatriation: SUNY Maritime College assesses a repatriation fee when any member of the ship’s compliment is returned to the vessel’s place of origin prior to completion of the term or their assignment. For this purpose, the definition of place of origin is the SUNY Maritime College campus located at 6 Pennyfield Avenue, Bronx, NY 10465. The repatriation fee is to cover expenses incurred by SUNY Maritime College to return the person repatriated for cause to the place of origin during the course of the cruise. This fee is a SUNY Maritime College fee, exclusive of any other costs the individual may incur.
