As a Leeward student, you have the opportunity to obtain a fully online Social Sciences degree from University of Hawaii at Mānoa (UHM). We've partnered with UHM's College of Social Sciences in the Aloha Pathways Online program for qualifying students.

You'll complete your lower division courses online here at Leeward. You may also qualify for dual admissions and dual enrollment with UHM through the UH Kaʻieʻie Program.

Typically, the first two years of credits are earned fully online, followed by the major degree credits earned fully online through UHM. Each situation is unique, and our concierge advising team will get you started on your first steps in the Aloha Pathways Online degree program! Upon admission, you'll receive a personalized review of completed coursework to create an individualized progression plan for program completion including general education requirements.

Earning your degree online enables you to pursue your goals without having to put your life on hold. Learn when and where you want, at a time that meets your schedule!

Aloha Pathways Online is a brand new program that is growing quickly! Check back frequently for updated information.
