Academic Calendars

The College operates on the semester system. Some courses are modular, ranging from 2 to 7 weeks. Day and evening classes are available for full-time and part-time credit and non-credit students from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Courses may meet 5 or fewer times per week.

A summer program includes limited on-campus offerings and courses delivered by other UH campuses via HITS (Hawai‘i Interactive Television System), also known as ITV (Interactive Television), cable TV, and internet. During the summer sessions, most courses must be self-supporting; therefore, tuition rates are higher than they are for the fall and spring semesters.

Please check a current Academic Calendar to confirm these dates.
