Step 1 – Apply

All University of Hawai’i campuses use the same System Application Form for undergraduate enrollment. Click here to start your application online.

If you do not qualify as a bona fide resident of the State of Hawai’i, according to the UH regulations in effect at the time you register, you must pay nonresident tuition for your classes.

You must also pay a $25.00 application fee. At the end of the online registration process, if you’ve indicated you are a non-resident you will be prompted for payment.

Residency status will be determined at the time of application. You may be required to provide verifying documentation.

For general admissions, notification will be sent within two weeks after the UH System Application and other required documents are received.

During periods when a high volume of applications is being processed, notification of acceptance or rejection may be delayed.

Applicants applying prior to deadlines are notified of their status. Applicants applying after the deadlines are asked to check with the Admission and Records office regarding their admission status and registration information.
