Hawaii Schools with Nontraditional Student Support
Here are some older links and information about Nontraditional Student support in this state. There may still be some clues here to help you find help and support at your school. Please pardon any links that no longer work. They will soon be deleted or fixed this year (2015).
The University of Hawaii at Manoa has a special "Care" page explaining who is a nontraditional student there and what services they offer. They have a center on campus especially for nontraditional students too. You can find out more here: About Nontraditional Students, and The CARE page. You must be a resident of Hawaii.

Hawaii Pacific University, located in Honolulu, Hawaii, has an Adult Services Program. From the site: "Hawai'i Pacific University is focused on offering services to adult undergraduate students. While there is not a precise definition, we generally think of adults as having lifetime and work experience who are ready to return to education. Our academic policies, scheduling, and curriculum all support the return of adults to higher education after being away from the classroom for some time." This Program also helps veterans and has special free information sessions. Find out more here: Hawaii Pacific Info. Page and here: The Contact Us University Page.
