The University of Hawaii Community Colleges are committed to ensuring the health and safety of our faculty, staff, and students. We are following the guidance of President Lassner and Governor Ige by moving classes to remote delivery as much as possible.
In an effort to provide students the opportunity to complete their classes to allow for graduation, progress toward their degrees, and/or certification, some of the community college courses will continue to meet in person, for part of or all of a class, due to program accreditation requirements and specialized equipment needs. These decisions were made after much consideration and appropriate steps will be taken to keep our faculty, staff, and students safe. This will allow some students to earn their degrees and be qualified to serve as essential workers, such as in health care.
Social distancing protocols and enhanced disinfecting procedures will be implemented. If a student does not want to continue to attend in person classes, they should notify their instructor and arrange for accommodations and/or request an ”incomplete” for the class.
We are continuously evaluating these decisions, and students should communicate with their instructors regarding any changes.
