Updated July 1, 2020:
In response to the challenges presented by COVID-19, Hawai'i Community College is closed to the general public at this time, but still open to students and employees essential in supporting our delivery of online classes. We are currently preparing for a safe return to our campuses for the fall 2020 semester. See the University COVID-19 Guidelines for a safe, successful return to campus.
It is recommended that students stay in close communication with their instructors and advisors as the semester approaches. You may also find Student Support Information below.
UH System has established an email address, firstname.lastname@example.org, where questions related to COVID-19 impacts on the college and university can be sent.
