Getting started at UHMC > An enrollment checklist
Maui College has an open enrollment policy and accepts all adults 18 years and older without requiring a high school diploma or GED. An early admit program is available to high school juniors and seniors who wish to take college courses during the summer, fall, or spring semesters of their junior or senior years.
Please note: The federal financial aid program requires a high school diploma, GED, or acceptable scores on an Ability to Benefit test for eligibility.
There are several steps involved in enrolling in classes at UHMC. If you need more information or help completing the college or financial aid applications, call the Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) at 984-3286.
Admission to college
1. Complete the University of Hawai`i Common Application paper form and submit it to the Admissions Office at the Ho`okipa Building (984-3267). An on-line application is available at UH's Undergraduate Admissions Overview.
2. Submit a negative TB test result (current within the year) and proof of Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) immunization. (MMR is waived for those born before 1958 and for Hawaii high school graduates.)
Preparing to enroll in classes 1. Take English and math placement tests if the courses you want to enroll in require placement test results. All English and math courses require placement test recommendations or completion of prior college courses. Many other classes require placement testing. Test times are available throughout the week on a walk-in basis. Call The Learning Center (TLC) at 984-3240 for times. You may use calculators for the math placement test. You will get the results when you leave. Allow about an hour for each test.
2. ONLY if you have attended college previously: Request transcripts from your previous college(s) to be sent DIRECTLY to Admissions Office, Maui College, 310 Ka`ahumanu Avenue, Kahului, HI 96732.
3. ONLY if you need Financial Aid to help pay for college expenses: Call the Educational Opportunity Center with questions and/or for assistance with financial aid and scholarship searches (984-3286). The FAFSA requires information from your tax return. Money is awarded on a "first-in, first served" basis. To make MCC's April 1 priority deadline, you should submit your FAFSA by March 1.
Choosing a major and creating an ed plan SEE AN ACADEMIC COUNSELOR. Call 984-3306. Don’t forget to have your math and English placement test scores and be prepared to explore:
