MASSACHUSETTS MARITIME ACADEMY
Policy on Transfer Student Regimental Standing

Effective fall 2013, all spring transfer students must attend and successfully complete the Spring Semester Orientation Program (SSOP) before the start of the spring term. This program is designed to prepare the student with the basic information on the regiment, proper wearing of the uniform, proper grooming standards, and the basic rules and regulations of the Academy and the Regimental Manual.

After successful completion of the Spring Orientation Program, spring transfer students must attend and successfully complete the full orientation program prior to the fall term. Students will be considered “cadet candidates” until recognized as 4/C cadets. Following successful completion of the Orientation Program in August, fall term and a winter intersession program or sea term, cadets will “bump-up” to the class standing as determined by the Commandant of Cadets.
