Get help transferring to a four-year university during UH Transfer Day, February 20

Are you a Hawai‘i Community College student interested in or curious about attending a four-year university?

If so, make plans to attend “UH Transfer Day at Hawai‘i CC” on Tuesday, February 20 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Manono Campus in Hilo.

Representatives from many academic programs and student services departments from UH Hilo, Mānoa and West O‘ahu will be there to talk with students about options for earning a bachelor’s degree after attending Hawai‘i CC.

In addition there will be information sessions on financial aid and distance learning for transfer students.

See below for more. (NOTE: Information will be updated as more details become available.)


The event will happen in and around Kaneikeao (Building 379) on the Manono campus.

>>>Get “auto-admitted” on the spot

Students graduating from any of the University of Hawaiʻi’s seven community colleges with an A.A. degree or selected A.S. degrees will be notified that they may be eligible for automatic admission to UH Mānoa, UH Hilo, or UH West O‘ahu. Under automatic admission, the application fee is waived, priority registration provided, and student transcripts analyzed to help identify likely majors. If you are a student who received an auto admissions notice on February 1, you can talk to admissions representatives from the four-year campuses at UH Transfer Day, and when you’re ready to select your campus, they can help you complete it. Also, if they need transcripts from a non-UH campus you attended previously, we will help you make that request.

>>>Financial Aid and Distance Learning Info Sessions and Q&A

"Financial Aid: Transfer Made Simple”

Worried about how you’ll pay for the next step in your college career? Nani Muneketa, financial aid counselor at UH Hilo, is here to help. In this workshop she will discuss the financial aid application process; types of funding available; disbursement details; important dates; Satisfactory Academic Progress; and managing loan debt. Times: 10:30am and 12 noon.

“Distance Learning: The Inside Scoop”

The University of Hawai‘i has many programs that can be completed online or through a hybrid model. These distance learning options make it possible to earn a bachelor’s degree from Mānoa or West Oahu while continuing to live on Hawai‘i Island. Carrie Kuwada Phipps, Education Specialist at University Center, West Hawai‘i, will lead a workshop that gives you the inside scoop on what programs are available and what you need to know to be a successful distance learning student. Times: 11 am and 12:30 pm.
