HELP welcomed students back to in-person classes in Fall 2020 and continues to conduct classes in-person following the best health & safety guidance during the COVID-19 pandemic.  During the ongoing pandemic, HELP remains committed to providing the best learning environment for our students while keeping our HELP ʻohana safe and healthy.

We will be following all guidelines set forth by the CDC; Federal, State, and Local Government; and University of Hawaii officials.  Official University of Hawai’i at Mānoa guidance for the campus can be found on the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa: Moving Forward website.

We recognize that it is extremely difficult for students to plan for their studies with the amount of uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 situation worldwide.  International students face significant obstacles in planning due to the U.S. Embassy closures, visa processing times, flight availability, travel restrictions, and more.  

As we continue to closely monitor the situation, HELP aims to provide as much information as possible about our future terms so that students can better navigate these obstacles and make appropriate decisions about their upcoming studies at HELP.  In developing these policies and procedures, we keep the following factors at the forefront:

  • Student & staff health and safety
  • Quality of HELP courses in all delivery formats
  • Flexibility & assurance for students

Information about our plans for courses during the COVID-19 health crisis can be found on the pages below. We will continue to update this information as the situation evolves.
