Applications for admission to the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa in the Fall 2010 semester are up by 25 percent from Fall 2009. As of today, UH Manoa has received 6,025 applications, compared to 4,848 applications at the same time last year.
In addition, with the Spring 2010 semester beginning this week, UH Mānoa is tracking an increase of over 400 enrollments ahead of Spring 2009, including 17 percent more applications from statewide community college students compared to a year ago.
As of today, 18,729 students have enrolled at UH Manoa, compared to 18,316 students in Spring 2009, representing a 2.3 percent increase.
“We’re excited by the public’s recognition that a UH Mānoa degree is a great investment in our students’ careers and future lives—resulting in an increase in applications for the Fall and in enrollment this semester,” says Mānoa Chancellor Virginia S. Hinshaw. “We’re also glad that community college students in the UH system are choosing to pursue their higher education at Mānoa. We’re working hard to facilitate their transition from a two-year college to a four-year university and subsequent graduate studies in a streamlined, seamless manner.”
