Option 2: Custom "Sheltered" Hawaiian Language Classes

HIDOE employees interested in enrolling in a custom/sheltered Hawaiian 101 and/or Hawaiian 102 course should inquire within their HIDOE unit. Unit leaders may request a sheltered/closed UHCC course for credit, taught by college-approved faculty for HIDOE employees only, by coordinating with the UHCC campus contact.
