Spectral changes of a stochastic electromagnetic Gaussian Schell-model (EGSM) beam interacting with a Gaussian cavity are investigated. It is shown that the spectral shift is mainly determined by the degree of polarization of the initial beam and by the parameters of the cavity. Generically the blue shift occurs at on-axis points, while the red shift can occur at off-axis points. The condition under which the relative spectral shift is independent of the degree of polarization of the initial beam is analyzed.
