Explore bachelor’s degree options during UH Transfer Day

Hawai‘i Community College is teaming up with University of Hawai‘i four-year campuses to highlight the pathways to bachelor’s degrees that are available within the 10-campus UH system. 


Hawai‘i CC students who earn associate in arts or certain associate in science degrees are eligible for automatic admission to a UH four-year campus. These “transfer students” enter as juniors and don’t need to reapply or pay an application fee. Students transferring with their Associate of Arts in Liberal Arts completed will also have their general education waived towards their bachelor’s degree. 


Current Hawai‘i CC students and members of the public who want to learn more about the options for transferring from Hawai‘i CC to a four-year UH campus can attend UH Transfer Day on Thursday, February 20 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Hawai‘i CC Manono Campus Cafeteria. Current Hawai‘i CC students can also attend UH Transfer Day at the Hawai‘i CC – Palamanui Campus on Friday, February 21 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.


The events also includes refreshments, a selfie station and games. 


The education pathway from Hawai‘i CC to a four-year campus is one that allows students to experience the unique programs, the welcoming campus and the lower tuition rates Hawai‘i CC offers before transferring to a four-year university to earn their bachelor’s degree. 


“I think if I’d gone straight to a four-year university, I don’t think I would have made it,” said Hawai‘i CC alumnus Noah Patterson Hanahano Dolim who transferred from Hawai‘i CC to UH Hilo and UH Manoa and is now a PhD candidate. “The transition would have been too hard. I really needed the smaller school.”
