LIHU‘E — The University of Hawai‘i Community Colleges is launching a new admission application called the Kama‘aina App. This short, easy and free application is exclusively for Hawai‘i’s Class of 2022 graduating high-school seniors. The Kama‘aina App takes students less than 15 minutes to complete, and has no application fee.
A shorter application saves students valuable time in the college-application process. A fast acceptance means students will not have to wait as long to find out if they have been accepted and can start planning for their futures sooner.
“We welcome the Class of 2022 to the University of Hawai‘i’s seven community colleges for education and training in a wide range of programs that prepares them for success in careers and contributing to the community,” said Erika Lacro, UH vice president of community colleges.
”The Kama‘aina App streamlines the process for admission for our graduating high-school seniors to take the next steps for their future,” she said.
In addition to a new application, UHCC offers various scholarships to help make a postsecondary education affordable. Every Hawai‘i student who is eligible is considered for the Hawai‘i Promise Scholarship, which provides free in-state tuition for qualified UHCC students with financial needs. Last year, about 2,500 UHCC students were offered more than $5 million of these scholarships.
The Kama‘aina App is open to all Hawai‘i Class of 2022 seniors attending a public, private or charter school in Hawai‘i.
Students can apply now for the upcoming summer and fall 2022 semesters at kamaaina.hawaii.edu.
For Hawai‘i public high-school seniors needing assistance in completing their college applications, Hawai‘i P-20 Partnerships for Education is hosting a series of college-application workshops. To register for an upcoming event, go to collegeiswithinreachhawaii.com.
