The University of Guam and the College of the Marshall Islands have signed an agreement that is expected to smooth the way for Marshall Islands students to attend the four-year university on Guam.
University of Guam President Robert Underwood joined College of the Marshall Islands President Kenneth Woodbury in Majuro to sign the first articulation agreement.
Mr Underwood says over the next several years, he hopes to double the 12 Marshall Islands students currently studying at the Guam University.
The articulation agreement allows students from the Majuro-based college to transfer all their college credits earned at the College of the Marshall Islands to UOG.
College of the Marshall Islands President Kenneth Woodbury says the new articulation agreement offers our students the opportunity to continue their education in Micronesia.
Both schools are United States accredited through the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
This is the second articulation agreement the College of the Marshall Islands has signed.
The first was with the University of Hawaii Hilo campus.
