Mai ka hikina a i ke komohana, mai uka a i kai, welina mai i ke kahua kulanui o ke Koʻolau!
From the east to the west, from mountains to ocean, welcome to Windward Community College!

As you open this catalog and explore our courses, degrees, and services, you take the first step in joining our ʻohana of learners. Our counselors, faculty, staff, and administration are here to help you on this journey. Your success is our success.

Aʻohe hana nui ke alu ʻia. “No task is too hard when we work together.”

You have overcome a difficult time, a worldwide pandemic, and continue to endeavor and grow, choosing higher education as your path. Windward is here to help you navigate that path through a supportive environment. We have a childcare center with scholarships for the children of students, free tutoring, free lunches and many more services to help you succeed.

Kūlia i ka nuʻu!  “Strive for the highest.”

You are part of an amazing community of students, staff, faculty, and community members. Windward CC’s campus is lush and beautiful, but our true beauty comes from the people who make this a great place to learn. Come, grow and thrive with us.

Wishing you a fulfilling journey,
