Aloha and E Komo Mai
The Hawaii Community College at the University of Hawai'i Center, West Hawai'i coordinates access to courses and programs from the entire University of Hawai'i System
Aloha,The faculty and staff of the University Center West Hawai‘i welcome you to what we hope will be an exciting time in your life. We’re a small campus, tucked away in the corners of a converted shopping center, but we provide access to the best education available from the University of Hawai‘i.
We’re proud to be part of a university system that spans the state’s six major islands with 10 campuses and more than 50,000 students. Whether you’re a student at the flagship research facility in Manoa or at the Center here in Kealakekua, the University of Hawai‘i system can be a door to challenges, growth, and opportunity.
As the extension campus of Hawai‘i Community College (Hilo), we offer West Hawai‘i students an onsite library, a culinary school, a nursing program, a computer lab, counseling services, and courses leading to AA and AS degrees in areas such as early childhood education, Hawaiian lifestyles, human services, and liberal arts.
As a University Center, we offer access via distance education to four-year and graduate degrees, including a Post-baccalaureate Certificate in Education and an MBA program from UH-Hilo, UH-West Oahu, and UH-Manoa.
Don’t let our appearance fool you. Buildings don’t make a college. If you’re looking for an education, the faculty and staff at the Center will do everything in their power to help you succeed. Right here in Kealakekua. Right here on the most beautiful island in the world.
