Hawai‘i CC – Pālamanui opened in August 2015. It is a branch campus of Hawai‘i Community College and part of the University of Hawai‘i system. It is located in North Kona, mauka of the Kona International Airport. Hawai‘i CC – Pālamanui offers certificates and associate degrees from Hawai’i Community College. The campus also includes the University of Hawai‘i Center, West Hawai’i.

The center is a gateway for residents of West Hawai‘i to undertake programs from other University of Hawai‘i campuses while continuing to live in West Hawai‘i. Programs from other UH campuses enroll and deliver courses to students in West Hawai’i using a combination of formats, including: online any-time, site-to-site real-time interactive video conferencing, and face-to-face participation.

Local students have the advantage of campus-based resources and support (library, counseling, student activities) plus the opportunity to access an entire spectrum of associate, bachelor’s and graduate degrees.
