You want to address the issue by providing what ever additional information they need to continue processing your USCG license application.
No worries. If you get an Awaiting Information Letter from the USCG it's not a big deal. It just means there are more steps you need to complete and your USCG license application is going to take longer than expected.
If you are using mmseas.com and submitted your application with MM-SEAS our team takes care of all of this behind the scenes for you.

You will receive a response from the USCG within 10 days. It typically comes around a week after submission.
We hope this made your life a little easier and if you have other questions the MM-SEAS team is always here to help!
No matter what, when you are ready to submit your application, you can choose to have the MM-SEAS staff create a perfect application, handle the USCG application fees and work with the USCG on your behalf to resolve any issues for a flat fee of $349 or you can choose to submit on your own.
