College History

History

Honolulu Community College (Honolulu CC) was established in 1920 as the Territorial Trade School in Palama. Subsequently, it became part McKinley High School, but was later reestablished as Honolulu Vocational School. It became the Honolulu Technical School in 1955 before becoming part of the University of Hawai?i as a result of the Community College Act of 1964. In 1966, the Board of Regents approved the name Honolulu Community College and authorized the school to grant Associate in Arts and Associate in Science degrees. As one of seven schools comprising the UH Community College System, Honolulu CC experienced rapid growth between 1966 and 1976 and has evolved into a fully comprehensive community college. The Main Campus, a short distance from the heart of Honolulu on Dillingham Boulevard, offers liberal arts instruction leading to a two-year Associate in Arts degree, allowing students to transfer credits to achieve junior class standing at four-year higher education institutions within the State. The college also has facilities near Honolulu International Airport, at Kalaeloa Airport (Kapolei), on Kokea Street, and at Sand Island that currently offer Associate in Science, Associate in Applied Science, and Associate in Technical Studies degrees. Certificate programs in more than twenty Career and Technical Education areas that are integrated with a strong general education "core" help Honolulu CC provide an educated citizenry for the workforce of the State of Hawai�i.
