Registering for a DE Class

What’s offered?

As a Hawai‘i Community College student, you can register for a DE class offered through your home campus, or through any of the other six UHCC campuses (Honolulu, Kapiolani, Leeward, Windward, Maui, and Kauai), as long as you meet the course and program requirements for that class. Check with your counselor or the Admissions and Records Office if you have questions or special circumstances (e.g. you only want to take DE classes or have questions about credit transferability).

To view DE courses offered at all UH campuses, go to the UH Distance Learning website. However, before registering for a DE class, check the class availability listing to confirm space availability, and review all course information and notes listed for any specific requirements the class might have.

Registration process

Once you have chosen a DE class and have determined that you meet all of the requirements for the course, your next step is to register for the DE course through MyUH, just as you would register for a regular Hawai‘i CC class.

Your home campus (Hawai‘i CC) will provide you with student and academic support services, including academic advising, registration, financial aid.

NOTE: If you are an international student with an F-1 visa, check with your counselor for further information before registering for a DE class.

DE & Financial Aid

You may be able to apply your financial aid award to a DE course, but there may be additional forms or requirements. Before registering for a DE class, check with your faculty advisor or counselor for more information.
