Add/Drop and Withdrawal Policy

Adding or dropping a course is official only after the student has completed an add/drop card. A $5.00 fee is charged each time a student drops or adds a course(s) (except when replacing a canceled course). Note: There are no "even exchanges" if a class is dropped in the less than 100% refund period and another class is added. Students are responsible for paying the percentage lost and refunds usually take 6 to 8 weeks to process (see refund schedule on insert).


Textbooks are available for sale each semester through the Honolulu CC Bookstore.

Student Obligations

Students who have not satisfied their obligations (tuition, fees, fines, Health Clearance, etc.) will not be allowed to register for classes, participate in graduation ceremonies, and receive grade reports, diplomas, or transcripts.

Course Cancellations

Honolulu Community College reserves the right to cancel a course due to insufficient enrollment. Students will receive a full refund for any canceled course, or be offered an opportunity to transfer to another Honolulu CC course in the current term.
