The Bank of Hawaii College Assistance Program

What Is the College Assistance Program?

Bank of Hawaii believes in providing our employees with opportunities and options to enhance their development, both professionally and personally.

One of the greatest gifts an employer can give to its employees is the gift of education. In August 2016, we launched the Bank of Hawaii College Assistance Program (CAP). Uniquely different from our existing professional development opportunities, CAP is designed specifically for bank employees who have a desire to obtain their first four-year undergraduate degree.

There are many reasons why someone may not earn a bachelor’s degree. Whether it’s time, money or family obligations, it may not always be feasible to return to school, especially considering its rising costs. Search jobs to see what job opportunities are currently available.

Benefits of the Program

CAP provides Bank of Hawaii employees with the opportunity, flexibility and convenience to obtain the degree they’ve always dreamed of. Our Bank of Hawaii CAP gives our employees the option to shape their own future and path. Ultimately, investing in our employees also means investing in Hawaii.

“Our hope is to provide Hawaii with well-prepared individuals who aspire to better themselves and our state,” says Peter Ho, Bank of Hawaii chairman, president and CEO.

How It Works

In partnership with Chaminade University of Honolulu, the Bank of Hawaii College Assistance Program is aimed at helping our employees get back on the path to obtaining their first four-year undergraduate degree with tuition reimbursement, for up to six classes per year, through Chaminade University’s Professional and Continuing Education (PACE) online program.

Through this program, enrolled employees:

  • Will receive half of the tuition reimbursement prior to the start of each term to help lessen the upfront out-of-pocket costs. (The second half is reimbursed after the completion of courses and other required obligations.)
  • Have the flexibility to choose from select majors, regardless of whether or not they relate to employees’ jobs at the bank. Majors include: Business Administration, Criminology & Criminal Justice, English, Historical & Political Studies, Management, Psychology and Religious Studies.
  • Have the opportunity to advance their learning, at their convenience, with no obligation to stay with Bank of Hawaii.
