Virtual Sessions

The best way for prospective candidates to get to know the United States Merchant Marine Academy is to attend an information session and tour. However, we also offer a way to connect with us from a distance. Come join us for a live virtual information session with an Admissions Officer. We hope to introduce you to the unique experiences USMMA students enjoy, and provide you with a better understanding of the application process.
Virtual admissions information sessions are offered on Wednesdays at 3:00PM and are approximately 45 minutes in duration. You will need a computer or mobile device, and an internet connection to access the virtual sessions. Times are in Eastern Standard Time (EST).
