A vital component of the University of Hawaii education system, Honolulu Community College (Honolulu CC) is a world-famous educational institution providing high-quality instruction at affordable rates to a diverse cross-section of the local community.
Among its most acclaimed achievements is the transfer program, which allows credit students the opportunity to transfer to any of over 2,000 colleges and universities across the United States. Special assistance is given to students while preparing documentation for such transfers.
Honolulu CC offers a safe and comfortable environment for students to engage in academic and extracurricular activities. The college offers a vast range of associate degree, certificate and competency programs in areas such as science, applied science, technical studies, arts and liberal arts.
A vast array of student activities is regularly organized, including music performances, film screenings, live concerts, dances, video game competitions, special trips and much more. The activity level is deliberately kept high to ensure that students receive a full educational experience that equips them technically, academically and socially.
At $2,300 for in-state students, tuition is immensely affordable for the indigenous population. With the kind of reputation that the college has built over the past 43 years since its full accreditation in 1970, Honolulu CC is a highly recommended option for students to pursue their two-year education needs. With the robust transfer program in place, the college is the perfect gateway to a full four-year degree elsewhere in Hawaii and the rest of the United States.
