Memorandum of Understanding between Hawaiʻi Community College and The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo

March 9, 2011

The Administration of Justice (AJ) major at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo (UH Hilo) requires one course - Administration of Justice (AJ 101) - offered at Hawaiʻi Community College (Hawaiʻi CC). In support of this degree partnership agreement, UH Hilo students will be able to register for the course as a regular part of their UH Hilo load and will pay applicable tuition fees for the course to UH Hilo. Compensation will be rebated to Hawaiʻi CC using a formula as indicated in #8 below. UH Hilo students may register for other Hawaiʻi CC AJ and/or SUBS course(s) as transferable elective credits for the Bachelor's Degree in Administration of Justice at UH Hilo and must pay Hawaiʻi CC tuition and other applicable Hawaiʻi CC students’ fees.

  1. Administration of Justice 101 (AJ 101) is in Banner Catalog at each campus. Each semester that AJ 101 is offered at Hawaiʻi CC, the course offering(s) will be entered into Banner by each campus with identical scheduling information (days, times, place, instructor).

  2. The instructor(s) of AJ 101 will be selected and paid by Hawaiʻi CC.

  3. The UH Hilo Program Coordinator will be responsible for contacting the Hawaiʻi CC Program Coordinator for the scheduling information for AJ 101 course offering(s) and for turning in the scheduling information at the appropriate time to the Social Science Division of the College of Arts and Science at UH Hilo to schedule AJ 101 course offering(s) in Banner.

  4. The Hawaiʻi CC Instructor(s) teaching the course(s) will be provided Banner access to the UH Hilo course to access the class list and student information and to input grades.

  5. The total number of seats will be determined by the overall class cap; the number of seats available for each campus will be determined by the Hawaiʻi CC and UH Hilo Program Coordinators. For the first year of this agreement, Hawaiʻi CC will provide 10 seats to UH Hilo for their AJ 101 course(s).

  6. During registration, the UH Hilo and Hawaiʻi CC Program Coordinators will monitor enrollment; at the beginning of the week prior to instruction, seats may be redistributed to maximize enrollment. Each campus will determine its own process for adjusting the class cap, with the maximum class cap in the combined sections remaining at the discretion of the Hawaiʻi CC.

  7. Official enrollment in UH Hilo AJ 101 course(s) will be determined at the end of the 50% refund period.

  8. Payment will be made by UH Hilo to Hawaiʻi CC according to the following formula:

    • Cost per student = Actual Instructor pay rate, x 3 credits, divided by the total number of Hawaiʻi CC and UH Hilo students in a designated AJ101 course(s).
    • Total Payment = The number of UH Hilo students registered in a designated AJ 101 course() x the cost per student calculation above.
  9. This agreement shall be in effect for three years from the date of signature starting in the Fall 2011 to Spring 2014. It may be terminated in writing by either party, with a minimum of one full semester’s notice.
