"I strongly recommend the Accounting program at Hawai'i Community College. They offer a variety of courses where students can learn valuable work skills and get hands-on experience. I found the faculty and staff very helpful in providing a broad student support system. They offer one-on-one help, after class tutoring, and career planning assistance. They even help with finding job opportunities. Thanks to Hawai'i Community College I felt prepared to get the job I really wanted and to reach further academic goals."

Sometimes it’s hard to figure out what you want be and what your purpose is in life. I finally found my passion for working with youth and families at the age of 35. To me it’s not when you figure it out, it’s what you do once you know.

I had a great experience studying at Hawai'i Community College. The professors I had were very helpful and were always there to assist me. My associate degree in Accounting helped me prepare to transfer to UH Hilo and gave me tools to learn more in accounting. I would recommend Hawai'i CC as a great place to enroll.

"I really liked the small classes, because you get more one-on-one time with the teachers. I know at bigger schools you don’t get that."
