NHERC offers UH Hilo credit courses for undergraduate students who are both classified and unclassified students. Hawai'i Community College students, high school juniors and seniors, and community members are also welcome to take NHERC credit courses. All NHERC courses are regular UH Hilo courses that are offered off-site in Honoka'a or Waimea.
Applying for UH Hilo Credit Courses - College in Honoka'a
Students interested in becoming a regular UH Hilo college student in Honoka'a should apply through the regular UH Hilo admissions process- please refer to the Admissions website and follow the instructions to apply. The application deadline for students who wish to be classified for the Fall 2013 semester is July 1, 2013.
Hawai'i Community College students and community members who would like to enroll in classes must fill out and submit a UH Hilo application to become an unclassified student. High school students wishing to enroll in courses should check out our Running Start webpage.
Registering for NHERC College Credit Courses
All students register for NHERC courses through their MyUH account, but must first contact NHERC to be coded as a North Hawai'i student. Once a student has been coded, they will be able to register for NHERC courses in future semesters without contacting NHERC.
Hawai'i Community College students and community members can register for NHERC classes but must be coded after their unclassified application has been processed by Admissions.
To become coded as a North Hawai'i student and register for our courses for the first time, please call NHERC directly at (808) 775-8890 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
