Thank you for your interest in visiting Massachusetts Maritime Academy. Due to the current spread of COVID-19, the Academy has suspended all on-campus visitation until further notice. Please feel free to register for a Virtual Information Session below and continue to monitor our website for future visitation opportunities when they become available. We look forward to hosting you on campus when it is safe to do so.

Virtual Information Sessions
General information session will be conducted virtually using Zoom. As we are not able to accommodate campus visits at this time due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we hope these information sessions will allow you to learn more about the Academy and what we have to offer while following CDC guidelines. This session will be hosted by an admissions counselor and cover general information about the Academy, academics, the Regiment, and the admissions process. It is designed for high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors, as well as transfer students. To register for a Virtual Information Session, please create an online profile and search for a session under Events!
Cadet Chats 
Wondering what life is like as a Buccaneer? These 30 minute virtual chats will allow you to connect one-on-one with a current cadet. Hosted by members of our Admissions Ambassador program, you get to ask the experts, our current cadets, specific questions about Mass Maritime. Inquire about the Regiment, classes and professors, clubs and organizations, campus life, and more! While geared towards rising seniors who may be narrowing down their college search, any prospective student interested in Mass Maritime can register. We highly encourage you to prepare questions in advance. 
  • Chats are offered Wednesdays and Thursdays at 4:00pm + 8:00pm

Virtual Prospective Student Interviews
We want to chat with you! A personal interview with a member of our Admission's staff will give you the opportunity to ask questions and tell us more about yourself; your interests, accomplishments, and goals. Interviews are not required for admission to the Academy, however, they are encouraged for those who are highly interested in Mass Maritime or for those who would like to discuss further questions. These interviews can be scheduled for over the phone or a video call through Google Meet. Please note, interviews scheduled prior to applying are more informative and those scheduled after applying will be more evaluative.
  • If you will be applying as a transfer student, schedule your interview with our Transfer Counselor, Joanne Robertson.
  • If you are in high school and will be applying as a freshman student, please use our Staff Page to determine your personal counselor based on where you currently live! You can schedule an interview with you counselor from the Staff Page.
