The College of the Marshall Islands (CMI) is an autonomous community college accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.

CMI offers high school equivalency, community extension, student development, certificate, and associate degree programs in liberal arts & sciences, elementary education, and nursing.

Established in 1989, CMI proudly stands as the national college of the Republic of the Marshall Islands, serving the Marshallese people and the wider Pacific region.

The main campus of the College is located in the Uliga neighborhood of Majuro, the capitol of the Marshall Islands.

Amidst the hustle and bustle of this busy urban center, our students attend classes designed specifically for their needs, with international and multicultural instructors and professors focused on getting students to meet their individual goals and achieve life-long dreams. Besides an enriching environment, CMI students have access to Residence Hall facilities, newly built Tolemour Hall, a state-of-the-art Nursing Laboratory, a new Energy Building and Classroom block, classrooms in Wapepe Hall which overlook the ocean side, a newly constructed Administration Building, College Center, and a two-storey Library.

A second campus is located in the lush community of Arrak approximately 30 miles from the Uliga Campus.

The College offers a First Year Residential Experience Program at Arrak, as well as vocational programs teaching carpentry and maritime skills.

The Arrak Campus also houses the Land Grant Cooperative Research and Extension Program.
