EducationUSA- Federated States of Micronesia

The United States is the leading higher education destination for students around the world. The knowledge and skills international students develop on U.S. campuses prepare them to become the next generation of world leaders who can work across languages, cultures, and borders to solve shared global challenges. According to the Institute for International Education’s Open Doors Report, the number of international students in the U.S. increased by seven percent to a record high of 886,052 in 2013-2014. Due to the unique relationship the United States has with the Federated States of Micronesia, FSM citizens travel to and from the United States without requiring visas.
