About Summer Sea Term

Summer sea term is when students gain the hands-on, practical experience of working on, sailing and powering a marine vessel. It is required for students pursuing their U.S. Coast Guard licenses.

There is an additional cost for summer sea term. The costs covers tuition, food, ship maintenance, crewing, supplies, equipment and internet access. Students will also receive separate bills for mandatory international insurance and a plane ticket for the change-out, if applicable.

Repatriation

If any member of the ship's complement is returned before their assigned term is complete for any reason - including medical, disciplinary or other emergency - there will be an additional $2,000 charge. This charge covers additional travel costs. The individual will be returned to the ship's place of origin, 6 Pennyfield Avenue, Throggs Neck, New York.

Taking Two Half Sea Terms

If a cadet-student is approved to take both halves of summer sea term (12 credits) to make up sea time, they will be charged for both full halves, rather than the price of the full 90-day cruise.
