Learn the benefits of a distance learning education from Honolulu University!

Honolulu University is an institution of higher learning that offers, to the citizens of all lands, the opportunities of global distance learning.

With the explosion of modern technology, today's work market is requiring ever-higher levels of skill. Old skills often become obsolete within a matter of months. Continuing education is rapidly becoming a life-long requirement in many career fields. Those who do not undertake continuing education are often left behind on the promotion ladder as younger, better-educated employees pass them up.

Those entering careers find a college diploma from a higher learning institution is the first requirement without which they will not even be considered. With the increasing demands made by job, family, and civic responsibilities, few adults can find the time for regular on-campus attendance. Further, tuition costs have risen so high that few can afford them without government grants or going into debt. Traditional education increasingly confronts mid-career adults with the dilemma of choosing between family, career, and school. Honolulu University makes it possible for students to acquire needed knowledge without sacrificing family or career success.

At Honolulu University, we recognize that traditional college classroom instruction may not meet the unique needs of the mature learner. Time and scheduling requirements, inflexible academic requirements and unrealistically high tuition costs are problems that Honolulu University can solve.

Honolulu University maintains a high quality of education that matches, or exceeds, what can be accomplished in the traditional classroom. In fact, a mature mid-career professional can often achieve a higher quality of academic work due to the one-to-one relationship with a highly qualified and experienced mentor than is possible in the classroom where an instructor's efforts must be directed toward many students of varying levels of ability.
