What’s the difference between Leeward CC programs and Affiliated programs?

  • Leeward CC programs
    These are programs that Leeward has set up with partner institutions abroad.  Students pay Leeward tuition, and receive Leeward credits.  These programs may or may not be accompanied by a Leeward faculty member.
  • Affiliated programs
    These are programs provided by our partners, Globalinks, API, CAPA, and CISaborad.  As students from an Affiliated Institution, Leeward students receive a discount on the published price of these programs.  NO Leeward tuition is paid for these programs, and students are responsible on their own for requesting transfer credits through the Leeward Admission & Records Office. The transfer of these credits is not facilitated or guaranteed by the Office of International Programs.
