The BS in KRS program was recently changed and became effective in Fall 2012. Also, the College of Education (COE) has started admitting students into programs from their first year at UHM. With the new students to have recently entered and are starting on this new program, which also includes all current students who were not yet accepted into the COE.

At present, we are evaluating the effects of admitting freshmen on the overall intergity of our program. We do not have any confirmation data on the number of enrollees, retention, probation or dismissal of majors. One major asessment activity will be the need to harnest the retention data and work progressively to assist those who might require additional assistance to remain active and academically eligible.
