Description: Ka'ie'ie is a degree pathway program with the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa (UHM).

  • It is a dual-admission, dual-enrollment program for students who would like to pursue a four-year undergraduate degree but choose to begin their degree at Kapi'olani Community College.
    • As a Ka’ie’ie student, you are admitted to the University of Hawai’i at Manoa and take all your courses at Kapi’olani Community College until you are ready to transfer smoothly and successfully to UHM.
    • Ka’ie’ie students will easily be able to access resources and academic advising at both institutions.
    • The main goal of Ka’ie’ie is to help students graduate with a bachelor’s degree within as close as possible to a total of four years (or the equivalent in part-time attendance)
  • Come and learn about the program and application process.
  • No sign-up required for the workshop.

To apply for the Ka'ie'ie Program please make an appointment with a counselor in the Maida Kamber Center or Lauren Prepose-Forsen (
