About Maritime College Alumni Association

An independent 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the Maritime College Alumni Association (MCAA) was founded in 1903 with the mission of bringing together the community of graduates from Fort Schuyler/SUNY Maritime College. The MCAA provides alumni with a vehicle for expanding their personal and professional networks, and has been disbursing financial and career support to current students for over 118 years. The College, established in 1874 under the name of the New York Nautical School, and later became SUNY Maritime College, is the oldest and largest maritime college in the nation.”
