To make sure that our innovative, quality programs are relevant to the realities of the world today and to your dreams and goals, we invite you, the learner, to actively participate in designing your individual program.

Honolulu University is unique in that it provides Off-Campus Programs, Online Programs, Non-Credited & Continuing Education Courses that function as a nonprofit university. We’re here for all our students past and present, and available to provide the necessary knowledge and resources to enhance their lives, careers, families, communities and nation. Honolulu University is recognized as an unaccredited institution focused on distance learning in a nontraditional higher education setting with experienced mentors assigned to each student.

It’s a different world out there today, one that has its own curious pressures, and challenges for success. Today we find the student population educating themselves for the immediate edge to jump start their careers. It is a different academic world than we’re usually accustomed to, and a totally different academic environment. Regardless, I encourage you to be open to the immediate advancements of technology, and to have open discussions with mentors, students, and others to explore distance learning and sound out expectations.

Honolulu University is fully committed to focusing on the needs of every individual student and help in creating a future vison and to recognize opportunities for further educational growth in order to be successful in this evolving academic environment. With the internet and technological growth of the web we have more options than ever before. Today, we understand that many people are unable to attend traditional universities, colleges or institutions because of jobs and family commitments. We firmly believe that knowledge does not have to be learned in a traditional classroom. Knowledge is what you gain when you have the desire, ambition and drive to learn, incorporated with self-study and discipline. We believe that mentorship education should be offered to everyone.

If you are seeking certification, diplomas or just seeking to meet continuing education requirements, or further professional development we can help. The majority of our programs are self-paced and fully online, allowing working professionals to connect with a top-ranked mentor/advisor from anywhere, at any time. An online degree, diploma or certification is the same one as earned on an institutional campus without the rigorous daily classroom activity. It is individually designed for your experience. We view and value learning as a lifelong process that includes experiences not to be confined to just classrooms and laboratories.

Technological advances are on-going, continuing and progressing because of human lifestyle changes and needs. The Internet, which helps link people together from around the world, is a technological advance that we use to communicate with our many students around the world. All our students are given the freedom to study and work on their degree or particular program of study at their own pace while communicating with us via the Internet and or instructor. Our innovative independent study programs allow learners to achieve their educational objectives rapidly at their convenience, with the confidence that the information they are mastering is up to date and relevant to the realities of the world today. Everyone receives the excellent academic guidance, recommendation and opportunities.

Welcome to the international social network of Honolulu University as we help guide you on your journey to success. Knowledge is power, and knowledge is the key to success.
