Students need to check with their Reclassification Department Officer to find out if any course that they take advances them in their schedule. For teachers already in the DOE system in Hawai‘i, it depends on their field of expertise and their school assignment responsibilities. From the UH side, the course needs to be within a degree granting program, and the course content needs to be related to the teacher’s field of expertise. Applications must be filled out with the HIDOE Reclassification Department. Previous graduates have had their coursework count in advancing their HIDOE salary.
