Life on the Big Island
The Big island of Hawai`i is known for its quality of life. A good mix of tropical rains and sunny days provide the island with lush greenery throughout the year. With a population of 45,000, Hilo has less crime, pollution, traffic, noise, and crowding than Honolulu or other metropolitan areas. The beach, mountain, and forest areas are minutes away by car. Join our students who swim, surf, snorkel, dive, hike, camp, and run in their free time!
Hawai`i Community College, a campus of the nationally ranked University of Hawaii System, offers international students 22 Associate of Arts or Associate of Applied Science degrees in vocational arts, liberal arts, business, nursing, and forestry. In addition, Hawai`i CC is the only community college in the United States with a Hawaiian Lifestyles degree program with an option to transfer to a 4-year degree program in Hawaiian Studies. All degree programs give students chances for an internship to apply their learning to work experience, service learning, and Optional Practical Training (OPT) after graduation. Hawaii CC currently enrolls over 2000 students. It is a small college that offers personalized care for all of its students.
