Transfer Student

Transferring Credits to University of Hawaii Maui College Students with knowledge and skills obtained through previous coursework or experience have several options for applying additional credit to their College programs. High school students may earn “advanced credits” by taking high school courses that are articulated with UH Maui College courses through the 2+2 Credit-by-Articulation program. Participation in this program may enable a student to shorten the length of time it takes to complete an UH Maui College certificate or degree. For the list of articulated courses and the procedure for receiving UHMC credit for articulated high school courses, call 984-3294. A student transferring from another institution of higher education may be allowed credit for previous academic work. It is the student’s responsibility to have transcripts of previous work sent directly to Admission & Records by the institutions previously attended, to apply for evaluation of transcripts for advanced standing, and to provide course description information by submitting catalog(s) from all previous colleges attended, if required. Click here for the Transcript Evaluation Request Form Maui College offers the student who has received prior education or training the opportunity to gain advanced standing. Final approval of the credit to be granted must be made by the Dean of Instruction. All such credit is granted on the Credit/No Credit basis. Applications are available from Admission & Records. Students with previous keyboard training may place in a more advanced course, commensurate with their speed and skill.

ABIT Student Project Showcase Nov. 20th

Kahului, HI — November 17, 2014 — Students with entrepreneurial aspirations in UH Maui College’s Applied Business & Information Technology (ABIT) program invite the public for a sneak peak of their beta businesses next Thursday, November 20th during two sessions: 10:30AM – 12:00PM and 5:30PM – 7:00PM in the campus’ Kaʻaʻike building. What kinds of small businesses might be arriving in Maui County soon? Student plans range from an exotic, hand-made jewelry company using local sources, to a cyber-security consultancy, a company distributing ‘culturally inspired Hāna-made products’, a raw food restaurant, and a centrally located furniture refinisher/paint warehouse. “This is an important next step for our students. They’re taking their business idea from a vision to a professional presentation, and are looking forward to feedback from the community to hone their plan and launch a successful enterprise,” said ABIT program coordinator Dr. Debasis Bhattacharya. “The program’s goal is to incubate the next generation of small businesses that will help our local economy thrive.” Misty-Rayne Fontanilla, an ABIT student in her final year, will be presenting Makana ʻo Hāna, which translates in English as a “gift of Hāna”. Makana ʻo Hāna will provide its malihini (guests/visitors) with the opportunity to “take a piece of Hāna home” with them by offering “culturally inspired, Hāna-made products” handcrafted by the locals themselves. “The ABIT program has helped me to take a business idea and turn it into a working reality,” said Fontanilla. “A Hawaiian proverb states, “ʻAʻohe pau ka ʻike i ka hālau hoʻokahi”, which can be understood as “one does not learn from one source alone”. With the help of mentors and guides, I’m learning step-by-step how to start a successful business.” Another student, Jeremy Bac, is developing
