The College Achievement and Retention Experience (C.A.R.E.) at Honolulu Community College (HonCC) strives to foster an environment of accountability, support, and achievement for all HonCC students. We understand that everyone faces challenges, and everyone needs assistance in meeting them. We offer specialized services and support for skills such as self-management, setting and prioritizing goals, and addressing common obstacles that every student may encounter during their academic life. We can also help you access programs and services that develop attitudes and behaviors necessary for success.
At HonCC, we understand how important it is to have a support team. We are here to keep you on track as you achieve your educational and career goals. Our dedicated staff is available by appointment, Monday through Friday. If you would prefer guidance and support from an experienced HonCC student, our peer-to-peer coaches can help guide you.
