Get Started on a Bachelor's Degree

You can begin your college education at Hawai’i Community College and easily transfer to a four-year university to earn a bachelor’s degree. We offer programs designed to make this process simple.

For example, if you earn an associate of arts in liberal arts, you can be automatically accepted as a junior at UH Mānoa, UH Hilo or UH West O'ahu with your general education requirements complete — no need to reapply and no application fee. Several UH bachelor's degrees are online, providing a convenient educational pathway.

“ I think if I’d gone straight to a four-year university, I don’t think I would have made it. The transition would have been too hard. I really needed the smaller school.”
