Partnership Program

Reduced tuition benefit for your employees/members

Our campus is a small part of the city, but our students are a big part of the community. Our students are making the world a better place, starting right here in Honolulu.

Through our partnership program, we offer a reduced tuition discount that makes it easier for your employees/members to receive a hands on education.

As a partner, your employees/members not only receive a generous tuition discount, they are eligible for:

  • Application fee waiver
  • In-class and Online instruction
  • Personalized degree pathways
  • Full-time or Part-time enrollment
