For over 100 years, Massachusetts Maritime Academy has been preparing women and men for exciting and rewarding careers on land and sea. As the nation's finest co-ed maritime college, MMA challenges students to succeed by balancing a unique regimented lifestyle with a typical four-year college environment. As a member of the cadet corps you will live, study, sail, work and play in an atmosphere that encourages you to be your best.
Special Mission Designation
The Board of Higher Education designated the Academy a Special Mission College in 2004, establishing at that time a partnership that permitted the Academy to determine a set of performance measures by which to gauge its success in meeting the broad objectives of its unique mission. The partnership further authorized the Academy to set and retain its student fees and tuition on campus. Special Mission updates, data, and documentation can be found below:
