The Honolulu Community College Admissions and Records Office is committed to providing high quality information and services regarding admissions, registration, and graduation to students, faculty, staff, and community members.
Due to overwhelming interest in our Electrical Installation & Maintenance Technology (EIMT) Program, admissions will be temporarily paused. We will not be intaking any new students for the Fall 2022 or Spring 2023 semesters. Also, we will not be admitting any students into the Auto Body Repair and Painting (ABRP) Program for the Fall 2022 or Spring 2023 semesters. Please check the website frequently for updates. We are still admitting students into other programs. If you are interested and would like to speak with us about options, please contact us at (808) 845-9162 or email us.

For any previous coursework to be evaluated for transfer to HonCC, the student’s Home Institution must be HonCC and must be in a degree program. The Records Office will forward official transcripts to the appropriate program counselor for evaluation.
- Courses taken within the University of Hawai‘i System do not need to have a transcript sent to HonCC
- Courses taken outside of the University of Hawai‘i System need to be sent directly to the HonCC Records Office to be deemed an official transcript (hand-delivered or faxed transcripts are considered unofficial and will be used for placement purposes only)
Once the transcript evaluation is complete, transferred credits will be available for student’s review via the transcript tab on the STAR Degree Check at STAR. The transfer courses will be posted to the student’s HonCC transcript after completion of coursework at HonCC.
For questions about your transcripts being received you may contact the Records Office by email. For any questions about the status or result of your transcript evaluation you can contact your Academic Counselor.

Students who are currently enrolled, or planning to graduate, have the option to send their official transcript after final grades are posted or after their degree is awarded. If these options are not selected, your request will be sent within the normal processing time.
- Current Transcripts – Process As Is: Your request will be processed as is with your current record. If you are currently enrolled for the semester, the courses will display on your transcript as “in-progress”.

Transcript attachments may be submitted with your online request through the National Student Clearinghouse. Acceptable attachments include AMCAS, PharmCAS, NursingCAS, MCATL, LSAC, and Common Application forms. Do not include attachments such as, resumes, cover-letters, or other similar documents with your transcript request. We reserve the right not to include certain documents with your transcripts and we do not assume responsibility regarding the legibility of your document.
Electronic Transcripts (eTranscripts)
eTranscripts can be sent to any valid email address in a secure certified PDF format. These transcripts are considered official documents and can be validated as they have been digitally signed and certified by the Records Office.
It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that the recipient accepts electronic PDF transcripts and that the recipient’s email address is entered accurately as there is a charge for each request regardless of whether the email address entered is valid or not. Once ordered, the recipient’s email address cannot be changed. If the request needs to be sent to a different email address, a new order must be placed. Charges for eTranscripts are nonrefundable.
Once the eTranscript has been processed, the student and/or the recipient will have 30 days from the first day the transcript is opened or accessed to view, print, and save the PDF transcript.
Status of Transcript Order: To check on the status of your online transcript order, please visit the National Student Clearinghouse website. Enter your transcript order number and email address. Your transcript order number is displayed on your order confirmation page and all emails associated with your order.

In general, the Fall semester deadline is November 15th and the Spring semester deadline is April 15th.

Honolulu Community College graduates will receive their diplomas about 12-15 weeks after the end of the semester. Students are responsible for ensuring that their mailing address on file is correct. If the student needs proof of their degree prior to the release of their diploma, we encourage them to submit a request for enrollment verification or transcript order as documentation of degree earned. Diplomas and transcripts will not be released until all financial obligations to the University of Hawai’i have been cleared.
Graduates can now order a replacement diploma and submit payment online using our Credential Trust portal. To ensure the integrity of your diploma, the Records Office will only accept requests made through this portal. All replacement diplomas have the word “Reissued” printed in small type at the bottom of the document. Requests for replacement diplomas will be processed by the Records Office at the end of May and December.
