3 credits in 5 Weeks

Interested in earning 3 credits in 5 weeks? Leeward is offering several online classes that start in February and one course that starts in March. It's a great opportunity to accelerate your your degree completion. All the courses fulfill a general education or graduation requirement.

The amount of coursework covered in these accelerated courses is the same as semester long courses. You'll be expected to complete the same amount of coursework in a condensed time. If you have any questions, talk over the possiblities with your counselor.

Tobacco Free

On July 10, 2018 Leeward Community College joined all University of Hawaiʻi campuses and facilities and became tobacco-free, joining more than 2,000 U.S. universities and colleges in an effort to provide a healthy environment for all students, faculty and staff.

Hawaiʻi state law now prohibits the use of tobacco products on all 10 UH campuses and university-owned facilities.

Military Friendly

For the seventh time, Leeward Community College earned the Military Friendly® School designation.

Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. For the first time, student survey data was taken into consideration for the designation. More than 1,400 schools participated in the 2018-2019 survey with 941 earning the designation.

Once again, several classes are being offered in classrooms located behind the OCEWD complex. This is the second time we've used the building for classes and many students are looking at their schedule with a quizzical look. Where is DH-E? To help locate the classrooms, we wanted to share this close-up of DH-E's location and how to get there! With the Theatre renovations continuing, the portable at the back end of campus on the diamond head side is a bit hard to find. If you have a class in DH-E, you might want to park in the side lot, or the newest parking lot behind the OCEWD Complex.

Enroll in Integrated Industrial Tech Program

Leeward is now accepting students in its newest academic program, Integrated Industrial Technology (IIT), with classes beginning in January. The program offers a two-year associate in science degree and related certificates and will prepare students for a wide range of careers such as manufacturing and electromechanical systems technicians in industrial automation.
