UH’s 10 Campuses Move Summer Courses Online

Summer school at the 10 campuses of the University of Hawaiʻi will be held online, allowing students to continue their academic careers while staying safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. The first session runs from May 26 to July 3, and the second session runs from July 6 to August 14. The exact dates may vary slightly from campus to campus.

By May 15, the university will decide whether in-person classes will be added to the second summer session depending on the status of the COVID-19 health crisis. 

Summer registration begins on April 6 for UH West Oʻahu, UH Hilo, UH Maui College, Kapiʻolani Community College (CC), Leeward CC, Honolulu CC, Windward CC, Kauai CC and Hawaiʻi CC in Hilo. Registration is already underway for UH Mānoa with more than 450 UH Mānoa Summer Session courses being offered. 

“We have such a great range of course offerings during the summer session and we hope our students take advantage of the opportunity,” said UH Mānoa Provost Michael Bruno. “Everyone in the community is invited to take a class or two. With many of us confined to our homes, it is a great opportunity to begin work towards a degree or to take a course in an area of interest.” 

UH Campuses Closed to All Except Students & Employees

In response to the COVID-19 health crisis, the 10 campuses of the University of Hawaiʻi are closed, effective immediately, to everyone except current students and employees.

The UH campuses are UH Mānoa, UH Hilo, UH West Oʻahu, UH Maui College, Leeward Community College (CC), Kapiʻolani CC, Honolulu CC, Windward CC, Kauaʻi CC and Hawaiʻi CC.

This is the latest step being taken for the health and safety of UH students and employees. The university announced on March 18 that it is transitioning to an online delivery of courses for the remainder of the spring semester. The closure of public-facing facilities and establishment of a process for employees to work remotely from home are in effect. Employees who are working on campus and students who come to campus or reside in student housing are instructed to practice social distancing.
