Unique opportunities.

MMI cadets often represent our college at prestigious state and national ceremonies and special events. One such recent honor was presenting a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery.

Welcome to the Corps.

Freshmen recruits became official members of the MMI Corps of Cadets on Aug. 31 during the traditional Cresting Ceremony, signaling the end of their Intensive Training Cycle.

Classes underway.

Cadets have begun the Fall 2018 semester following an orientation phase. Academic success and leadership go hand-in-hand in MMI's college curriculum.

Training begins.

From Coast Guard Academy scholars to NJCAA student-athletes, military and civilian-track freshmen have arrived on campus to start their Intensive Training Cycle.

Marion Made graduates.

The MMI Class of 2018 will scatter nationwide to continue their education at private schools such as the College of Charleston, and Syracuse University to large public institutions including Florida State University and Texas A&M.

Academy bound.

MMI’s Service Academy Program is the only one in the country that serves all five U.S. Service Academies: West Point, Coast Guard, Naval, Air Force, and Merchant Marine. Highly-qualified students are invited to enroll in this challenging, one-year program.

Peer leadership.

This is what Marion Made leadership looks like, whether on a civilian or military path. Our college Corps of Cadets represents more than 40 U.S. states and nearly every Alabama county. We set a higher standard in the classroom, in character development, and in our training. MMI's whole-person education can become your foundation for success.

Civilian path.

Immerse yourself in a leadership environment with no military obligation. More than 45% of our Corps of Cadets, including the majority of our student-athletes, takes their Leadership Education Program (LEP) experience into civilian career paths. Join the alumni ranks of business executives and professionals who share this unique educational foundation.

Military path.

If you’ve ever dreamed of serving your country as a military officer, Marion provides unique opportunities to do just that. Our Army ROTC Early Commissioning Program, our Service Academy Program, and our Marine Corps PLC, and Air Force ROTC options all can lead a cadet into a military career path.

Take the oath.

Yes, you can earn your second lieutenant's bars in just two years. MMI is one of only four military junior colleges in the nation offering the Army ROTC Early Commissioning Program (ECP), an accelerated path to becoming an officer. Cadre will provide the training and help develop the skills you need along the way, from graduating Basic Camp to receiving your first salute.
