Additionally, most schools have career services departments that can help students with resume building workshops, job search assistance and internship opportunities. Many of Hawaii’s community colleges also participate in articulation agreements with four-year universities so that credits earned at one school can be transferred to another if a student decides to pursue additional education after graduating from the community college.

The majority of Hawaii’s community colleges also have active involvement in their local communities through service learning projects and other initiatives designed to benefit residents throughout the state. This involvement allows students to gain real world experience while helping out those in need at the same time. In addition, some schools even offer special programs for veterans who want to earn an associate’s degree or certificate while taking advantage of their GI Bill benefits.
