Articulated Transfer Programs

Windward Community College (Windward CC) has a program-to-program articulation with UH Hilo for Astronomy and Geology, which spells out the requirements for Windward CC students who wish to earn a BS degree in either discipline from UH Hilo. For more information on which Windward CC classes will transfer directly into the Astronomy BS degree program at UH Hilo contact Dr. Joseph Ciotti at 808-236-9111 or the Office of Academic Affairs at 808-235-7422. For more information on which Windward CC classes will transfer directly into the Geology BA and BS degree programs at UH Hilo contact Dr. Floyd McCoy at 808-236-9115 or the Office of Academic Affairs at 808-235-7422. For other articulated programs, such as Creative Media or Hawaiian-Pacific Studies at UH West O‘ahu, please see a counselor.

Windward CC has two agreements with UH West O‘ahu, in which, upon completion of the Associate of Arts degree in Hawaiian Studies, a student can be accepted and enter as a junior into either the Bachelor in Applied Science with a concentration in Sustainable Community Food Systems (SCFS) or the Bachelor of Arts in Humanities with a concentration in Hawaiian-Pacific Studies. The Sustainable Community Food Systems (SCFS) is a degree program that prepares students for jobs in the sustainable food and agriculture sector in Hawai‘i and beyond. It is a multi-disciplinary, experiential and applied education program about key ecological and social issues in food and agricultural systems created to develop food system professionals capable of solving real-world problems and transitioning Hawai‘i agriculture toward greater ecological sustainability and social equity. The Bachelor of Arts degree in Humanities with a concentration in Hawaiian-Pacific Studies offers a wide array of courses on Hawai‘i and the Pacific Islands, enabling students to gain an overview of Pacific Island peoples and an in-depth knowledge of specific aspects of the cultures of Hawai‘i and the Pacific. For more information on these and other articulated programs, please see a counselor.
