Kauaʻi Community College



Kauaʻi Community College is a Hawaiian-serving Institution and the only institution of higher education in the County of Kauaʻi. Kauaʻi is the northernmost island of the eight major Hawaiian islands and is separated from Honolulu, the capital and main population and business center of the state, by 100 miles of the Pacific Ocean. Travel to any of the other islands is primarily by air. Niʻihau is a privately owned island, also located in the County of Kauaʻi, which is accessible only by boat and helicopter. It is home to the state’s largest concentration of people who learned Hawaiian as their first language. The College houses a University Center, which broadens the educational opportunities of island-bound residents by supporting distance education baccalaureate and graduate programs from sister UH campuses. This allows residents to further their education without leaving the island.
