There are seven public two-year institutions located across the state, including Hawaii Community College, Honolulu Community College, Kauai Community College, Leeward Community College, Maui College, Windward Community College and the University of Hawaii – West Oahu. Each college provides students with a variety of educational options in addition to traditional classes such as online learning, distance learning and weekend and evening classes.
Hawaii’s community colleges provide students with access to an extensive library system that includes print materials as well as digital databases and e-journals. Additionally, most schools have career services departments that can help students with resume building workshops, job search assistance and internship opportunities. Many of Hawaii’s community colleges also participate in articulation agreements with four-year universities so that credits earned at one school can be transferred to another if a student decides to pursue additional education after graduating from the community college.
The majority of Hawaii’s community colleges also have active involvement in their local communities through service learning projects and other initiatives designed to benefit residents throughout the state. This involvement allows students to gain real world experience while helping out those in need at the same time. In addition, some schools even offer special programs for veterans who want to earn an associate’s degree or certificate while taking advantage of their GI Bill benefits.
Overall, Hawaii’s network of seven public two-year institutions provides students with a wide range of educational opportunities at an affordable price. From traditional classes to online learning options – there is something available for all types of learners within this network! Whether you are looking for an associate’s degree program or just taking some courses towards your future four-year degree – you can find something that fits your needs at one of these schools!
