Kapi'olani Community College Reviews
Great community college. Lots of resources and easy transfer to University of Hawaii. I am a returning student after 10 years out of high school. My previous grades were less than ideal, and I had to work closely with a counselor in order to return to KCC. I eventually received my Assoc. Degree and was also recently accepted into the very competitive Assoc. Degree in Nursing program at KCC. Every step of the way, the counselors guided me into my future dream. I am so happy to be given a second chance at advancing my education. I highly recommend KCC to all students from all walks of life. They have a lot of clubs, student resources like tutors and job fairs, and their administrative team respond very quickly to emails should you have any questions or concerns. Love KCC!
Kapiolani Community College in my opinion is one of the best CC's on this island. The vibe to the college isn't like most colleges, it's not the stressful student kind of vibe, to describe it is say it has the island vibe to it very laid back stress free! The campus grounds have gone through renovations over the years but still hasn't lost its island touch. The builds are clean, the professors are very kind and welcoming. Just an amazing place to call school!
Everybody on campus is nice and friendly. Resources are always available to the students, also you don't ever feel uncomfortable with anybody. Very safe campus!
