Description

Leeward Community College (LCC) is an ideal educational institution for students either seeking careers in the creative arts or in high-demand technical and medical fields.

Located in Pearl City, Hawaii, just outside of Honolulu, Leeward Community College offers more than 60 associate degree and certificate programs. Fields of study include degrees in liberal arts, which include such specific and mostly artistic subjects like Creative Media, Hawaiin Studies, Music and Creative Writing.

Other more career-oriented degree and certificate programs are granted in such fields as Automotive Technology, Accounting, Business, Substance Abuse Counseling, Web Design, Medical Assisting, Phlebotomy and a variety of technical areas.

LCC’s Culinary Arts and Automotive Technology programs are particularly impressive, having received national recognition.

Another of LCC’s notable programs is the Television Production division. A unique program that is more like something seen at a four-year university, the Television Production major leads to an associate degree or certificate. Students study everything from lighting, to audio, directing, cinematography and editing.

With an open admission policy, Leeward only requires that students be at least 18 years old, or that they have a high school diploma, or GED.

Job placement assistance and free tutoring are some of the services offered at Leeward.

Financial aid offerings for eligible students include Pell grants, loans, on-campus employment and scholarships.

Detailed Ratings

The school is in prime location for me. The campus is close to home and close to my part-time job. I like the copy center because they help the students when they need any papers or documents that need to be transferred or printed. The LRC or Learning Resource Center is helpful if a student needs help with tutoring, writing papers, and also helping students with writing scholarship essays.
