The College of the Marshall Islands is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) a division of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
Accreditation is a voluntary system of self-regulation and peer review based on standards of good practice. It is designed to assure students and our Marshall Islands community that the college meets or exceeds these standards which reflect minimum conditions of quality and service for accredited institutions.
While the College of the Marshall Islands uses the Accreditation Standards to guide institutional decisions and program design on a daily basis, every six years it undergoes a comprehensive self-evaluation of all programs and services measuring itself against these Accreditation Standards. Following the self-evaluation, the Accrediting Commission assigns a team of peer evaluators to conduct a site visit to the college, where documentary evidence; interviews of faculty, staff, and students; and observation of instruction and support service programs is undertaken. The team's task is to validate the college's self-evaluation report and develop a comprehensive evaluation report and recommendation to the Accrediting Commission.
This website is designed to facilitate the dissemination of WASC/ACCJC communications with the college as well as serve as a repository for the college's current and historical accreditation reports. The site also links to all of WASC's educational and training materials.
The College of the Marshall Islands is committed to quality and to continuous improvement, and it embraces the accreditation process as an essential part of our on-going efforts for improvement and for supporting student success. We welcome your suggestions.
