Maritime Institute Policies
Maritime Institute's courses and tests are approved by the United States Coast Guard’s National Maritime Center. Most course examinations can be taken at the Maritime Institute in lieu of taking the exams at the USCG Regional Exam Center. All classroom courses are approved by the VA for Veteran education. Our school and some of its courses are also approved by POST for all California Law Enforcement such as DEA, Marshalls, Border Police, Customs, Harbor Police, Sheriffs and Police.
Tuition Payment and Refund Policy
This school has and maintains a policy for the refund of the unused portion of tuition, fees, and other charges in the event the student fails to enter or withdraws, or is discontinued there from at any time prior to the completion. The amount charged to the student for tuition, fees, and other charges does not exceed the approximate pro-rata portion of the total charges for the tuition, fees, and other charges, that the length of the completed portion of the course should bear to its total length.

A registration fee of $100.00 is due upon registration. This fee is required for students to receive course material before the start of the class and is not refundable. The balance of the tuition is due one week prior to the first day of class. Tuition is payable by cash, check, or credit card (Visa, Master Card or American Express). The student has a right to a full refund of all charges less the amount of the registration fee if he/she cancels this agreement on or before the first day of instruction.

In addition, the student may withdraw from a course after instruction has started and receive a pro-rated refund for the unused portion of the tuition and other refundable charges. For example, if the student completes only 24 hours of a 40-hour course and paid $400.00 tuition, the student would receive a refund of $160.00


Maritime Institute Inc. does not have available sponsored programs, Government or otherwise, to provide grants or loans to pay for portions of tuition and fees. Maritime Institute Inc. is approved for training of veterans and eligible persons under provisions of Title 38, United States Code.
