UH Manoa has received 12,067 new and transfer undergraduate student applications for enrollment in the Fall 2009 semester, a 5 percent increase over the 11,485 applications received for Fall 2008.

It is the second highest number of new and transfer undergrad applications at the flagship campus of the UH system since June 2004, which saw 12,623 applications for the Fall 2004 semester.

Said Chancellor Virginia S. Hinshaw, "Having more applications means that more students view UH Mānoa as their ʻdestination of choice.‘ We are excited to welcome these great students to UH Mānoa, and are also honored that they recognize UH Mānoa, along with our sister campuses, as a wise investment for their future careers and lives."

Final UH Mānoa enrollment figures for Fall 2009 will not be available until September. Students enrolled in the John A. Burns School of Medicine and the William S. Richardson School of Law, as well as those pursuing Graduate Division studies, were not included in the count.

As of June 15, a total of 4,101 new and transfer undergraduate students who were accepted to UH Mānoa had paid their tuition deposits, up almost 3 percent from the 3,988 who had paid their tuition deposits at the same time a year ago.

Added Alan Yang, Associate Vice Chancellor and Dean of Students, "Although the deadline for applications has passed, we continue to receive late applications, and will consider them given the current economic situation‘s impact on access to higher education."
