Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation.

I rate this college a 10, I received allot of help in the process of becoming a student. All my questions were answered and I felt really comfortable.
Jessica from Hilo, HI
HawCC has a very Ohana (family) like atmosphere that seems to invite you to their campus activities. The staff is so welcoming and very determined to help you achieve your dreams. And fellow students are full of Aloha and since we are all trying to achieve the same goal, we help eachother because were all in it together!
Raynell from Hilo, HI
HawaiiCC is a small, comfortable schooling environment, with understanding teachers and aloha friendly students I enjoy taking classes here to achieve my career goal at being a RN. They have a well managed campus with campus security and is well maintained with the restrooms and classes. It's location is very convenient also, being located right in the middle of Hilo makes the school close to many places including students homes.

Darlene from Pahoa, HI
Hawaii Community College is a great school for me because the tuition is the most cheapest, the staff offer a lot of help when needed and the location couldn't be any better. I would say that Hawaii Community College is an 9 out of 10 because although academically it is a great school, i wish there was more parking. Attending Hawaii Community College was one of the best choices I have made.
