I think that this university is okay, BUT if you are a transfer student or a freshman, you have to wait a long time after registration to enroll in the courses that apply to your major/degree. By the time you can register, classes are filled up completely, leaving you to enroll in courses that doesn't apply to your major or degree. Also, they need to "add" more courses for each degree, because if you have financial aid, such as from Kamehameha Schools, we'd have to be enrolled FULL-TIME! I hope that this university improves their school by adding more courses online, reduce WI, OC, requirements. Otherwise, this university has a beautiful campus.
A massive change in many college students' interpretation of education has shifted due to the pandemic. The University of Hawaii - West Oahu staff, educators, leadership role models, and many more have created teaching, advising, and student life most safely. With the significant change undertaken, these people took the time to make the change just for the students to better their education and college experience the safest way. University of Hawaii - West Oahu is closed for the whole 2020-2021 school year until further notice. The people who work in the school have a strong sense of having the students and workers be safe and healthy during this time of year. Even though there was a significant shift from in-person to distance education, it's manageable to the point where students are still being educated and getting their materials no matter what. Overall, the University of Hawaii - West Oahu is powerful minded in educating their students no matter the circumstances.
Great new campus on the West side of Oahu. Food in the cafe is great, friendly faces from student or faculty, many options for in-person or online classes for any degree, and close to shopping malls!
