Marion Military Institute

A Message from the Chief Instructional Officer

Dear Prospective Student,

Welcome to the Academic web page of Marion Military Institute.  The information you will find here reflects our dedication to our mission: to prepare each graduate for success at four-year institutions, including the service academics, with an emphasis on an enriching range of whole-person development experiences.

We offer Associate in Science and Associate in Arts degree programs based on a strong general studies and liberal arts curriculum taught by credentialed faculty who care about our students and their educational progress.  Within those degree programs, students have options tailored to their interests.  They can choose the general studies or liberal arts curriculum or, within those curricula, select academic concentrations which focus on disciplines,  including, among others, natural science, pre-nursing, criminal justice, and psychology.

We support these academic programs with electives essential for successful transfer to a four-year program.  Our performing arts, fitness, and humanities courses, for example, introduce students to a variety of experiences important to excelling in a challenging world.

We strive for consistently superior performance by our faculty, emphasizing ongoing assessment and evaluation of our programs.  Almost all of our instructors are full-time and dedicated to professional development, thus ensuring they use the most current methods. We are also committed to the most modern technologies in our classrooms.  Our small class size, averaging 17 students to every instructor in a core class, demands a high quality of diligence in teaching and learning.

Please note these useful sites for new and returning students:

  •   Academic Calendar –all the dates you need to know for the coming academic year
  •   College Catalog – course descriptions, academic policies, faculty roster, and available scholarships, among other useful information
  •   Registration Guide – a must-read for new students
