CMI overwhelmed by students

Marshall Islands Journal
August 19, 2011

CMI staff hustled over the weekend to create additional sections of courses to accommodate an unexpectedly high demand by new students. Typically the College of the Marshall Islands sees between 200 and 250 new students at fall semester registration, which took place last week. This year, the college was overwhelmed with demand from new students.

“This year the number exceeds 300 new students,” said Interim President Carl Hacker. The 316 new students registering for the fall semester is a 30 percent jump from a year ago. “This is a good problem to have,” said Hacker of the largest-ever number of new students to turn out for the fall semester. Starting school this week at the CMI and Arrak campuses are 978 students — which includes 55 in the new First Year Resident Emersion program. This is a 13 percent overall increase in enrollment from fall 2010, when CMI had 866 students registered.
